Albertsons is boosting its presence back home, making moves to invest in its home state with five new stores that will be remodeled to include a fresher focus, adding a revamp of its dairy section, an expanded salad bar, as well as new cold cases and check stands.

“Since 2013, we have made investment in the Treasure Valley a top priority and have remodeled all of our Albertsons stores here to ensure our customers have an exceptional and modern shopping experience,” Kathy Holland of the retailer’s Intermountain Division told the Idaho Statesman.

A single remodel will cost Albertsons upwards of $230,000 and, in addition to the features listed above, will include a new Starbucks kiosk and floor tiles for the store.

Albertsons will also debut its first Idaho Market Street banner as part of the move, remodeling a 100,000-square-foot former Shopko that will be unveiled with an emphasis on fresh products, according to the news source, and should open this fall. The retailer will also replace a recently-demolished store with a new building set to open in June, featuring an in-store dining and tap room and spanning 63,000-square-feet.

Additional new stores for the state include:

  • A 50,000-square-foot store issued by the city of Boise last month
  • A new store to be built on a 12-acre parcel in Ada County
  • A new store to be built on an 11-acre parcel in Barber Valley
  • A new store in south Meridian with no size provided

The two stores already set to open will employ 400 to 500 workers, Holland noted, and while there is no open date yet planned for the other new locations, Albertsons plans to hire 300 to 500 workers when they are up and running.

Deli Market News will continue to have our eye on further growth plans from Albertsons, as well as on other retail expansions that could influence the industry.
