Attention, southwest Bakersfield: the Albertsons on Stockdale Highway and Coffee Road that became a Haggen store will re-open as Albertsons Wednesday.
As for the other area Albertsons that is slated to re-open — on Panama Lane — no opening date has been set, the company said.
“I can’t think of a better way to kick off the new year than to have this opportunity in front of us,” said Albertsons, Vons and Pavilions President Lori Raya in a news release. “We want to do this right, both for our customers and store teams.”
Albertsons successfully bid for the two stores late last year as part of a bankruptcy auction process necessitated by money troubles at Haggen. Haggen had taken over the stores last spring when Albertsons had to shed them as part of a merger.
The Stockdale Highway Albertsons will be open daily from 6 a.m. to midnight.
