IRVINE, Calif. (July 6, 2017) — Not every grocery store can boast about its wine steward, cheese specialist, and concierge. Thanks to a major renovation and the introduction of brag-worthy wow factors, Pavilions in Irvine is now a top-shelf purveyor with all of the above.
“Pavilions is integral to our communities with four Irvine Company locations,” said Easther Liu, chief marketing officer, Irvine Company Retail Properties. “The vision for this new store provides precisely the boutique selection and elevated service our customers are seeking.”
In addition to a Starbucks, a scratch bakery and new fast-casual offerings at The Bistro, expect one of the largest selections of organic and locally grown produce; thousands of wines from across California and the globe with a steward at the ready; and don’t miss the curated selection of local craft beers and premium spirits. Meanwhile, the in-house cheesemonger will help customers select from a variety of gourmet cheeses and charcuterie.
“We are confident our customers will fall in love with all of the new offerings, service and features this Pavilions has to offer,” said Lori Raya, president, Albertsons, Vons and Pavilions. “We hope guests will take advantage of the concierge service, providing shoppers with event planning and catering to take any party to new heights.”
On the community front, the Pavilions Foundation has donated a $7,500 grant to the Tustin Public Schools Foundation.
Pavilions at Orchard Hills Shopping Center is at 3901 Portola Pky. in Irvine. It is open daily from 5 a.m. to midnight.
