Albertsons to Close 7 Northwest Stores Including Pendleton Location

The grocery chain Albertsons plans to close several stores in the Northwest, one of which is in Pendleton.

The Pendleton store located at 1300 SW Court Avenue is one of seven stores closing in Oregon, Washington and Western Idaho.

About 46 employees work at the Pendleton store which is expected to close by February 20th.

A spokesman for Albertsons says the grocery chain is continuously evaluating stores, closing locations that are less profitable.

None of the other stores are in our region -- as the rest are in western Washington and central Oregon.
