Haggen will add two Kitsap stores in March

uADctk7I9w75ZHwNOYGZDVpyjeaWD5LHfsF0IZXYwj4An Albertsons store in Silverdale and a Safeway in Port Orchard are set to become Haggen stores in March.

A Gig Harbor Safeway will also make the transition to Haggen next month. The East Bremerton Albertsons store won’t switch to the Haggen banner until June.

The Bellingham-based grocery chain recently agreed to acquire 146 grocery stores as part of the divestment process required for the Albertsons and Safeway merger. Haggen released a tentative schedule for converting its 26 new Washington stores Wednesday.

Changes at the stores will include signage and product lines. Major remodels are not planned. See my Q&A on the Haggen acquisition here.

  1. You talk about no remodeling? You should take a look at the deli Albertsons in silverdale we were hoping for a remodel scales and slicers and fryers are very old and out of date

    1. Thanks Laura,

      To clarify, a Haggen representative told me they don’t have plans for major remodels that would require closing stores. They could very well remodel and upgrade various departments.

  2. Any comparisons on grocery prices between Haggen, Alberstsons & QFC and maybe even Target or Walmart? It seems for this area that price increases are inevitable. Haggen is higher priced which will allow competing stores to adjust their prices a little higher and still beat Haggen on cost to consumers.

    It will be interesting to see what “new” products Haggen can bring vice just higher prices to South Kitsap.
