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
UPDATE! They lost the Groove. Awww nuts! Not even a ‘Grove’.
