Smart and Final… Not Just For Buying in Bulk

I recently had an amazing party with the help of Smart and Final. I hosted it at my friend Jessi’s house. She’s such a good sport!

When I was asked to do this as part of a social media campaign with Collective Bias… I thought… I’ve shopped at Smart and Final. It seems like it’s more of a warehouse store. Could I really do my regular shopping there and throw an amazing party?

The answer turns out to be YES and YES! Smart and Final is NOT just a warehouse store to go and buy in bulk. Is wine your thing? They have an amazing selection for even the most sophisticated pallet. How about cheeses? You bet! Would you like that pre-cubed, sliced, or by the brick?

No party would be complete without the party supplies! Smart and Final has a whole aisle dedicated to picnic ware! Paper plates, plastic cups, and cutlery abound in all sizes and quantities. That’s the best part… you can buy a bulk pack or an everyday size pack.

Every party needs snacks! Smart and Final had a great selection of chips, pretzels, and party crackers… you know… the kind you put delicious spreads on?

The thing I really love about Smart and Final is their store brand, First Street. They seem to have a First Street brand in just about anything you need. First Street brand is not only an affordable option… It’s also quality. Our party had First Street Cheeses and they were absolutely delicious! I had pepper jack and colby cubes out. Yum!

Before I did my initial shop with Collective Bias… I didn’t even know there was a Smart and Final near me until I used the store locator. I do know that it’s regional to the Southwest. Where’s your nearest location?

*Note: I was compensated for my party… but all the views and observations on shopping at Smart and Final are my own opinion. Thanks!

    I loved the First Street cheeses. Loads of variety, just there with the brand!

    The wine was magnificent and the company even greater. It was so great having the option to by for the masses, which will be great for the holidays that are so fast-approaching, and also for a small group having a spontaneous night in.
