In a few months, Westside folks will no longer have to trek all the way to the Fairfax District to get their health food groceries and Coconut Dream smoothies. Following its Calabasas opening and debunked plan to open in Malibu, Erewhon is finally set to open in Venice—and we have the job listings to prove it.
This page on popular job search engine Indeed.com reveals 10 full-time and part-time positions available for the highly-anticipated opening, including a produce assistant manager, a cashier, a receiving clerk, and a juice/tonic bar specialist. This listing specifically notes that "Erewhon is opening a new location in Venice and is expanding quickly. Training will take place in LA."
If you're unfamiliar with the Erewhon craze, here's a quick primer: the natural foods pioneers opened its first location on Beverly Boulevard back in 1968. Promoting clean and pure foods and products that are ethically and sustainably produced, the market is a hit with health foodies who don't mind spending a little (okay, a lot) more on their organic, non-GMO groceries. Superfans include Anna Hathaway, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, David Beckham, Miley Cyrus, and more.
We'll keep you posted on the where and when of Erewhon Venice as more details are revealed. In the meantime, get excited!
