The store will be served by a free shuttle that will run throughout the neighborhood on a regular schedule.
The remodeled Baldwin Hills Ralphs continues Ralphs' 140-year tradition of serving its shoppers and its community. The first Ralphs opened in Downtown Los Angeles at Sixth and Spring Streets in 1873. In 2007, Ralphs returned to Downtown when it opened the first new supermarket there in 50 years. Each year, Ralphs donates millions of dollars to Southern California charities and supports regional food banks.
Ralphs officials, store associates and local dignitaries will participate in the re-opening ribbon-cutting ceremony. The Dorsey High School drum corps will perform, and other special events include character appearances, product giveaways and samplings and raffle drawings through the weekend.
The celebration will include the presentation of $7,500 in grants from Ralphs to local community partners and schools, including Dorsey High School, Audubon Middle School and Baldwin Hills Elementary School.
