Albertsons Closes Randalls Distribution Center, Consolidates North Texas Operations

Thursday, March 9th, 2017

Albertsons will close its Randalls distribution center and office in Houston, the company says—in an effort to streamline its operations in the competitive North Texas market.

As reported by The Dallas Morning News, Albertsons will now be combining its subsidiary’s Houston operations with its own, through an office in Fort Worth and a distribution center in Roanoke.

The company expects to transition its office operations over the next three months—noting that the distribution center will likely take longer.

Albertsons currently operates 29 Randalls stores in Houston and 15 in Austin, as well as 64 Tom Thumb, and 42 Albertsons stores in North Texas.

The Roanoke distribution center will now supply Albertsons, Tom Thumb, and Randalls stores in Texas, Louisiana, and Arkansas.
