As many of you have heard– there are several Albertsons stores closing in So Cal. Stores that are closing will be shut down by Dec 1st or sooner.
It has been publicly announced that SuperValu is having financial trouble, so this comes to no surprise to me. It saddens me to see several of you lose your local stores–some of you have expressed that some of the stores closing are your only close store… Which means you lose the only store that doubles coupons in Southern California The following stores will be closed on or before Dec 1st 2012:
I love Albertsons and to be completely honest, I wouldn’t be surprised if they closed even more stores. Their prices are pretty high and they offer very little incentive to shop in their stores. Double the Value coupons are a great thing but they only appeal to certain shoppers (coupon shoppers) and the plain Joe who doesn’t want to mess with coupons has many more options that are cheaper.
Southern California is the most competitive when it comes to the grocery industry. With so many options–you need an edge and Albertsons seems to be lacking.
How do you feel about the closures?
