Hello, shoppers! Get prepared to take it in the shorts again! Let me get this straight. As part of anti-monopoly requirements designed to protect us from overpriced groceries following the Albertsons-Safeway merger, Haggen was allowed to buy 146 Safeway and Albertsons stores forced by the government to sell.
Now the incompetent Haggen closes and exposes us to even higher prices and less choices from the remaining Albertsons and Safeway/Vons stores.
Just checked, and yes, this is the definition of irony, folks!
