Both stores are scheduled to close in mid-May. An exact date has not been identified.

I suppose they are going to blame the internet for not having a store on every corner like the alcohol shops in the ghettos who take food stamps


The only surprise is that there are a lot more Albertsons and Safeways closing. Their prices are astoundenly through the roof when compared to Walmart or Winco. When you go to an Albertson's for a soda special i.e. 77 cents for Pepsi or Coke, they try to upsale the price at the register. In other words over charge you at the register.


Works for me. I shopped the Safeway a few months ago and walked out without buying anything. Selection sucked and the employees just stood around and jabbered between themselves.
