Haggen Announces More Stores for Sale in Oregon and Washington

BELLINGHAM, WA - Six more locations from two different states have been added to Haggen’s list of stores for sale.

As we previously reported, the chain added to its saga of ups and downs with the intention to either sell or shutter more than 100 stores, pull out of the Pacific Southwest market, and restructure itself under what it called its “core” profitable stores.

These latest additions to the list, three of which Q13 Fox reports are in the chain’s home state of Washington and three in Oregon, bring the count to 133 stores up for grabs.

The locations of the latest additions to the list include:

  • Puyallup, WA
  • Burien, WA
  • Federal Way, WA
  • West Linn, OR
  • Happy Valley, OR
  • Eugene, OR

According to the report, Haggen has said it has buyers lined up for 36 stores in California and Nevada, as well as a bid and auction process in place for some of the stores.

If the sales are successful, Haggen will almost be back to the same number of locations it was at this time last year, before it purchased 146 stores from Albertsons and Safeway.
