Bristol Farms Newfound Irvine Location Closing

Bristol Farms, an upscale grocery store chain situated in California, has 13 locations after the closing of their latest addition to the Bristol Farms stores. Bristol Farms Newfound Market, located in Irvine Spectrum Center, is set to close by early February, less than two years after its opening.

Neil Stern, CEO of Good Food Holdings, the parent company of Bristol Farms, revealed in an email that the decision to close the Irvine location was driven by underperformance rather than any issues with the Newfound Market concept itself. Stern acknowledged the commendable efforts of the Bristol Farms team in implementing the Newfound ideas but ultimately could not overcome the challenges associated with being in a shopping center.
