The store’s final day will be Feb. 20. The store already began liquidating its inventory Jan. 13 in anticipation of the closing.
“In such a competitive environment, our company must sometimes make the tough decision to close an underperforming store so that we can reinvest in our remaining stores in the marketplace,” Albertsons spokesperson Christy Lara wrote in a Jan. 13 email to Community Impact Newspaper.
Meanwhile, the company is working to place as many employees as possible in other locations. Also, pharmacy prescriptions will be transferred to the Randalls location at 5586 Weslayan St., Houston.
The Bellaire location is the only store set to close. 713-667-1167. www.randalls.com
