Smart & Final Bakersfield 1

Back in June of 2012, I had the opportunity to attend and feature the Grand Opening of the 4th Smart & Final Store in Bakersfield, but the FIRST Smart & Final Extra! Store!!!  It is a gorgeous store – very clean, well stocked, and comfortable to go shopping in.  I had a great time mingling with staff and touring the store that was to open to the Bakersfield Community the following day.
