From White Center Now: WC Albertsons now Super Saver Foods

We had just been covering this on our partner site White Center Now, but have also received a few notes from West Seattleites who used to shop at the old WC Albertsons on 16th, so in case you are interested: The ownership change happened this week, and the signs have just gone up – the store is now Super Saver Foods, and it’s open during remodeling. More details on WCN.

    Wasn’t this going to be a Saars?

      Saar’s is the parent company, as noted in our linked past WCN coverage (from here you have to follow two links, sorry ’bout that). Our original report on WCN quoted them as saying the branding would be Super Saver Foods, not Saar’s Whatever. – TR

    Ugh, the Burien Saars is frightening.

    Could not be any worse than the old Albertsons at that location. Probably the worst supermarket I’ve ever stepped foot in. I like Albertsons as a whole and often shop at the 2 in Burien, but that old one in WC was a joke. Always filthy, aisles cluttered with boxes, displays, pallets, etc. It was clear that the managers/management didn’t care about their job or their store. Just hope they wont be transferred to any existing Albertsons and ruin those stores too.

    I went in here for the first time last Sunday and was horrified by the conditions of this store. It reminded me of a Safeway that use to be in the Fremont/Wallingford area on Stone Way that people called “Scary Safeway” (they enventually tore it down). I seriously didn’t think grocery stores like this still existed in our community. Hopefully, the new name and new management makes some major improvements in the physical space and foods they carry.

    A KCSO deputy told me during a recent ride-along that the shoplifting calls from Albertson’s were persistently frequent. Visits to the Albertsons were pretty much routine to a shift, according to that experienced Sheriff’s deputy.

    I wonder if they’re going to continue their “no chase” policy? Different company but same clientele for the most part-in addition to location obviously.

Sorry, comment time is over.
