The ribbon cutting ceremony took place at 9:00 am at the front entrance of the newly renovated Vons. Company leadership, Pasadena City Councilmember Steve Madison, and local school leaders were in attendance.
Vons Area District Manager Julie Field recognized Store Director Angie Estrada for her tireless work and commitment to the store. After Angie introduced her store team, City Councilmember Steve Madison recognized the store’s commitment to the community. Director of Public Affairs, Courtney Carranza, introduced Carlos Illingsworth from the Pasadena Tournament of Roses and together they announced that Albertsons, Vons, and Pavilions will be this year’s Disability Sponsor for the Rose Parade in January.
Vons awarded two $2500 grants to Blair High School and Octavia E. Butler Middle School. Blair High School intends to use the funds for their environmental “green” initiative project. Principal Noemi Orduña from Octavia E. Butler Middle School shared that the funds would support various programs at her school.
The new Vons, part of the Albertsons Companies, features a newly designed floral shop, and an updated look for the produce, meat, bakery and Ready Meal departments.
