Tom Raley is the founder who opened our first store in 1935 in Placerville, California. The seeds from which our family of stores continues to expand are his commitment, hard work, and vision. Today they are proud to serve you across Northern California and Nevada at more than 110 Raley’s, Bel Air, and Nob Hill Foods locations. They believe it’s important to give back so they work with hundreds of organizations around the neighborhoods that they represent to help make a difference. And, their non-profit Food For Families initiative has raised over $31 million and distributed over 21 million pounds of grocery to local food banks for hunger-affected households.

You can expect seasonal produce, fresh meat and fish, high-quality items, and award-winning customer service while shopping with us. Your wellbeing and happiness are the centers of what they do. That’s why you can find in their stores a wide range of natural and organic foods and full-service pharmacies. They follow the highest expectations for food safety and are committed to sustainable practices. With what matters most to you, they aim to make your shopping experience simpler and better: supportive team members, safe and organized shops, and convenient services such as free knife sharpening and online shopping via eCart with store pick-up and the same day delivery. And, through their Something Special rewards scheme, they thank you for being you with tailored deals and savings.

Within the same venue, Nob Hill has a large range of food products and a variety of specialty pieces. The deli serves fresh meats and cheeses, and a new and beautiful show of the vegetable section.

Nob Hill is a grocery store in the neighborhood, with a helpful team. The customer service is fantastic. You can expect exceptional quality and not rusty, expired, or slimy. It’s good to see that either they’ve put a lot of work into keeping packed shelves in general or they’ve been able to anticipate last-minute shoppers stockpile the day of all days. They’re precious but with their vast stock range (many safe and organic products, and for years before it became fashionable Nob Hill was the only store selling red velvet cake mix) and beautifully spacious and tidy aisles they make up for you.

They have several brands you will like, fresh produce, adequate packaging, and easy check-out.
