Barons Market to Hold Job Fair For New Alpine Store

By SDBJ Staff Sunday, June 8, 2014

San Diego-based Barons Market plans to hold a two-day job fair June 13-14, as it looks to hire more than 30 for its new store planned in Alpine.

It is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both days, at 1347 Tavern Road in Alpine. Applications are available for download at baronsmarket.com, but the company is encouraging applicants to apply in person during the job fair.

The family-run grocery retailer plans a summer opening for what will be its fifth store. Officials said the company plans to complete its hiring two to three week following the job fair, to provide enough time to train workers before the summer debut.

An exact date for the Alpine opening has not been announced. Headquartered in Point Loma, Barons Market was started in 1991 and sells value-priced organic, natural and other specialty foods.
