retail news in context, analysis with attitude

• Tesco-owned Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Markets in the western US has opened its first Fresh & Easy Express store, on the corner of La Cienega Blvd. and 18th Street in Los Angeles - a 3,000 square foot unit that is roughly a third of the size of the standard Fresh & Easy, carrying just 2,700 SKUs.

The company is reportedly looking to expand the concept to other locations that would be amenable to a more convenient version of the Fresh & Easy format.
