WEST SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Raley’s opened its second store since the start of the COVID-19 outbreak. The new Bel Air outlet is the first full-service grocery store in Rancho Murieta, a Sacramento County community that’s home to 5,500 people. The traditional ribbon-cutting has been postponed until it’s safe for a community celebration, Raley’s said Wednesday.

“We have long been committed to bringing a full-line grocery store to Rancho Murieta,” said Keith Knopf, Raley’s president and chief executive officer “We look forward to serving the community with exceptional customer service and a full offering of quality fresh and prepared options at a fair value.”

The 35,000-square-foot store offers an extensive variety of fresh grocery items and grab-and-go prepared foods as well as full-service deli and bakery departments.

The store includes a beer and wine bar, Chocolate Fish Coffee Roasters and food service café, offering freshly prepared items such as tea drinks, juices, smoothies, acai bowls, specialty toasts and sushi. The beer and wine bar offers local craft brews, curated wines from Raley’s Curtis Mann and chef-created bar bites from Raley’s manager of culinary innovations, Evelyn Miliate.

Built into the store is the Something Extra Gather room, a space meant for meetings, brainstorms and family gatherings, Raley’s said in a statement. The space has seating for 22 people, audio visual capabilities and can be reserved at no cost by Raley’s Something Extra members. The café offers enough additional seating for 28 guests inside and 20 outdoors. These areas are now closed due to COVID-19, but ultimately are intended to provide the Rancho Murieta community with a new place to gather.

The store, built in partnership with Murieta Marketplace Associates, features energy-efficient LED lighting throughout and has solar panels that encompass the entire roof of the building. Unique features reflective of the mostly gated community include 13 golf cart parking spaces and four one-of-a-kind agriculture and golf themed art pieces by a local artist.

Raley’s operates 126 stores in Northern California and Nevada under the Raley’s, Bel Air, Nob Hill and other banners.
