LOS ANGELES -- With the goal of providing eco-friendly household products and healthy food options, the currently under construction Locali Conscious Convenience is a trendy mom-and-pop themed store that will soon cater to the greater Los Angeles area.
"I like to describe it as the sustainable version of 7-Eleven," Locali Chief Executive Officer Greg Horos said in a statement. "We’ll have healthy and eco-friendly versions of the all the typical things you’d find at a convenience market with the exception of cigarettes and lotto tickets—no clean versions of those."
Created by MASS Architecture & Design, Locali, Italian for "community," will be built according to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards and will feature energy efficient appliances, composting and an enhanced recycling program. In addition, the store will host local and organic food artisans who steer clear of refined sugar, hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup and genetically modified products.
"We’re building to LEED standards and working with the city of Los Angeles to make sure we can supersede those standards as much as possible," Horos said in a statement. "We have a lot of terrific value adds for the community. I’m most excited that we're offering exclusively organic and biodynamic wines and beers, too."
