Founded in 1991 by Jaime and Sylvia Martinez as a small carniceria, La Bonita Supermarkets has expanded considerably. The chain now boasts seven locations—one of which is currently undergoing an update—and it is working to open an eighth next year.
The location currently under renovation is La Bonita #4, located at 2500 E Desert Inn Road. Permitting paperwork was recently submitted to Clark County for work on the location with a contract valuation of $412,550.
“Coming Back Soon!!!” says a recent Instagram post about La Bonita #4. “We don’t have an exact date but it’s looking like the end of November or beginning of December!”
In addition to the work at La Bonita #4, La Bonita #8 is on its way in 2024, according to the La Bonita website.
“[La Bonita Supermarkets] no longer are just Carnicerias,” says the website. “The newest stores have Juice Bars serving fresh made juices and smoothies. Tortillerias making warm tortillas on a daily basis. A Panaderia baking conchas, bolillos and assorted Pan dulce fresh every morning. And a taqueria that cooks traditional and authentic homestyle Mexican food.”
What Now reached out to Jaime Martinez on Tuesday to inquire about the details of La Bonita #4’s update and the opening timeline for the eight location. Martinez declined to comment at this time.
