Nationwide Grocery Store Chain Pulls Out of Lubbock

NewsChannel 11 has learned that the last Albertsons grocery store in Lubbock is closing.

About 100 employees will lose their jobs when the store at South Loop 289 and Slide closes the first week of August. Albertsons media contact, Jennifer Vroman, tells us the store had been struggling financially for quite a while, and so corporate decided it was best to close it.    

This store will be the fourth and final location to close in the Hub City over the past ten years, most recently the 50th and Indiana location which closed in March.

Vroman tells us Albertsons will continue to operate West Texas stores in Amarillo, Midland-Odessa and San Angelo. She says there isn't much transfer opportunity for employees, unless they would like to move out of the Lubbock area. And if that is the case, she says Albertsons human resources department will help them do that.
