Fourth Name For CC Gate Supermarket

At midnight today, Albertsons in Pacific Grove, Sand City, Capitola and Salinas on South Main Street will close for conversion. They will reopen at 6 a.m. Wednesday.

Save Mart, which opened its first store in 1952 in Modesto, has 252 stores today, including Food Maxx, Albertsons and S-Mart Foods outlets. So far, it has converted 34 Albertsons to Save Mart stores, most recently in the Sacramento area.

Alpha-Beta, Lucky, Albertsons and now Save Mart.

Was there today – the are getting ready for the rebranding. Lots of SM logos on the walls. The checkers should wear leather aprons.

Since they are closing for 2 days, lots of stuff was on sale – meats in particular. Other stuff was scarce, like breads. Dare I say that the bread aisle looked like Safeway, empty on Sundays.

Hope they don’t lose the Groove in the receipt
Pacific Groove

UPDATE! They lost the Groove. Awww nuts! Not even a ‘Grove’.No Groove Receipt
