Jimmy and the Giant Supermarket - Bristol Farms - Netflix
Bristol Farms Inc. is an upscale grocery store chain in California, United States. Founded in Los Angeles County, Bristol Farms operates fifteen stores, twelve in Southern California, and one in San Francisco. The fourteenth and fifteenth stores operate as Lazy Acres Market in Santa Barbara and Long Beach, respectively. Another Lazy Acres Market opened in 2016 in Encinitas. After several changes in ownership over the years, the company is now privately owned by Endeavour Capital.
Jimmy and the Giant Supermarket - Owned by Albertsons - Netflix
In 2004, Bristol Farms was purchased by Albertsons, Inc. In October 2005, Bristol Farms purchased Santa Barbara-based Lazy Acres. Many believe that the independently owned single store Lazy Acres sold to Bristol Farms as a defensive move against Whole Foods' pending arrival into Santa Barbara. While this is Bristol Farms' first and only location in Santa Barbara, the 28,000-square-foot (2,600 m2) Lazy Acres store itself continues operating under its original format. The name Bristol Farms is not noted on signage or advertisements at Lazy Acres. The Long Beach Bristol Farms was converted into a second Lazy Acres in November 2012. In 2006, Bristol Farms opened its doors at the newly expanded Westfield San Francisco Centre in downtown San Francisco, becoming the first Bristol Farms in Northern California. The San Francisco site covers more than half the space of the Concourse Level in the lower level of the mall. Three former Albertsons locations have been converted into Bristol Farms, one in the La Jolla section of the city of San Diego, California, the second location in Palm Desert, California, which originally opened as Lucky, and the third location in the Westchester section of the city of Los Angeles, California.
