Haggen exterior

The latest updates:

May 13:
The fate of the final few unclaimed stores has now been determined. The court has approved Haggen’s motion to reject the leases of seven unsold stores, plus an eighth in Burien, Washington that was once slated to be sold to Albertsons. With all of the former and remaining Haggen stores now accounted for, this buttons up the Haggen bankruptcy and auction story for good.

March 14:
Haggen and Albertsons have announced that 14 of the 29 stores that Albertsons will be acquiring, will retain the Haggen name and be operated as a distinct, Albertsons-owned business unit. See the full list of the fate of each location below, and the complete story here.

March 11:
Haggen has confirmed an agreement to sell 29 of its remaining core stores to Albertsons. See the list of affected stores below, and read the full story here.

March 9:
First, the union representing Haggen employees leaked word that a possible deal is in the works, for Albertsons to buy Haggen’s remaining core stores (read more about that development here). All sides would have to act quickly, though, since those stores were due to be auctioned this Friday. But that’s no longer an issue – because, for the fifth time, the auction has been delayed. The new auction date – if it ends up taking place at all – is next Friday, March 18th.

Meanwhile, four non-core stores that have not yet sold, but are still open, will be closing soon. Haggen has notified the bankruptcy court of its intention to begin going-out-of-business sales at its stores in Clackamas and West Linn, Oregon; in Federal Way, Washington; and the 15840 1st Avenue South store in Burien, Washington.

February 19:
If you’re marking the date on your calendar when Haggen plans to auction its remaining stores – hope you’re writing in a pencil. The auction has been delayed for the fourth time, and is now scheduled for March 11th.

February 8:
Another delay for the auction to sell the rest of Haggen’s locations. Originally scheduled for January 8th, delayed until February 5th and further delayed to February 11th, the auction is now scheduled to be held on February 22nd.

February 2:
The auction of Haggen’s remaining stores that was to take place on February 5th, has been delayed by six days. It’s now scheduled to be held on February 11th, far from home, in the offices of a law firm in New York City.

January 15:
Under the terms of their sale agreement, all of the Haggen stores purchased by Albertsons had been cleared out prior to their transfer, so Albertsons could get a fresh start with empty buildings. All of them, that is, except one – the Haggen store on Canyon Road in Puyallup, Washington. So in an unusual turn of events, Haggen has told the bankruptcy court that it plans to hold a going-out-of-business liquidation sale in the coming weeks, so the Puyallup store will also be delivered to Albertsons as an emptied-out blank slate.

December 30:
Haggen has added 16 more stores to the list of leases it intends to reject, or walk away from, which means it’s given up hope of selling the majority of the stores that were put up for auction in November (see the list of affected stores under the heading “Rejected Leases” below). That leaves just five closed stores that Haggen still hopes to sell, ahead of a planned February auction for all the rest.

December 22:
Dozens more stores that didn’t sell at auction are still available, and now Smart & Final wants one of them. It’s made an offer for the Palm Desert, CA store which, if approved, would bring to 29 the number of shuttered Haggen stores that Smart & Final has acquired.

December 14:
Albertsons has picked up another couple of stores, in San Marcos and Santa Barbara. The court has approved Albertsons’ backup bid for the San Marcos property, after the proposed sale to Carnival Supermarkets did not go through. Albertsons’ bid for the Cliff Drive store in Santa Barbara was also approved, in lieu of the originally proposed sale to SB Grocery, LLC (Roxy’s Market).

December 9:
Haggen has added five more stores to the list of leases it intends to reject (see the list below). That brings to nearly two dozen, the number of unsold stores that Haggen is abandoning, and giving up hope of selling.

December 4:
In addition to approving Carnival Supermarket’s pending purchase of the Chula Vista store it won at auction last month, the bankruptcy judge has approved Haggen’s proposed process for selling its 33 remaining stores, with the original January 8th auction moved back to February 5th. One store in Eugene, Oregon, which was originally won at auction by Albertsons, is now on the February list and is once again available for sale.

November 30:
Haggen has notified the court of its intention to reject the leases of 16 stores, adding to three rejected leases that were approved last week (see the list below). That means Haggen has essentially given up hope of selling these locations, and is simply walking away. It will now be up to the leaseholders to find new tenants. That leaves 28 closed stores that Haggen still hopes to sell, in addition to the 32 still-open stores that are slated for auction in January.

November 25:
The bankruptcy judge has approved the sale of nearly all of the stores auctioned earlier this month. 47 of 55 stores that received bids have now officially been sold, 30 of them to their original owner, Albertsons. In a statement, Albertsons said it plans to “re-open the stores under its various operating banners in 2016.” Approval for the remaining eight stores sold so far, is still pending.

November 13:
The bankruptcy court has approved the proposed sale of three dozen stores to Gelson’s and Smart & Final that were first announced last month. Gelson’s bid of $36 million for 8 stores, and Smart & Final’s $56 million offer for 28 stores, were finalized after no other bidders made offers (see the list of stores going to each, below).

November 13:
In court documents filed early Friday morning, Haggen announced the successful bidders for more than half of the stores it sought to sell at auction this week. 55 stores in all have found potential buyers, pending the bankruptcy court’s approval in a hearing scheduled for November 24th. Individual selling prices were not disclosed, though Haggen announced that it had raised a total of more than $47 million from the auctions. See the full list of stores, bidders and still-unclaimed locations below.

November 9:
Haggen now plans to seek buyers for ALL of its stores. See details here.

November 6 – First on Coupons in the News:
As Haggen abandons its ill-fated West Coast expansion plan, the grocery chain has announced which of its stores will be auctioned, when, and to whom – and there’s a surprising name on the list.

Grocers including Smart & Final, Sprouts and Stater Bros. are on the newest list of potential buyers. And in an unusual twist to this unusual story, Albertsons is now looking to buy back at least three dozen stores that it was forced to sell to Haggen in the first place.

As a condition for approving Albertsons’ acquisition of Safeway, the Federal Trade Commission ordered Albertsons to sell off 168 Albertsons, Safeway and Vons and Tom Thumb stores. Haggen jumped at the chance to buy 146 of them, then almost immediately ran into trouble. A rapid downward spiral soon culminated in Haggen’s decision to shut down and sell off most of its new acquisitions.

In various interviews, FTC officials have defended their decision to approve the stores’ sale to Haggen, saying they had no inkling Haggen would fail so swiftly and spectacularly. Since then, some unions, employees and others have lobbied the FTC to allow Albertsons to buy some of the stores back. Any anticompetitive concerns aside, they say, it’s certainly preferable to allowing the stores to sit empty and leaving their employees without jobs. That is, if Albertsons decides to continue to operate the stores, and not merely sit on the sites to prevent them from going to any potential competitors.

Here is the latest list of the status of each store, which will be continually updated as more buyers emerge. So if your store is still on the list of stores for sale, keep coming back here for the newest developments.

  1. Is there any information on the Flagstaff AZ. Location still nothing going on

  2. Yay the upland CA store is reopening as an Albertsons next month and we all get to go back! Just thought I would share some good news!

  3. Any news on the store at 28090 South Western Ave in San Pedro

    • I read on one of the local FB pages that it was going to re-open in May ’16 as Albertsons. so far, nothing going on

  4. Benjamin says:

    There was a news paper article published on the 28th and I am now hearing radio advertisements confirming that the foothill Boulevard location in San Luis Obispo will become a California fresh store. They have already signed a 25 year lease on the location and are scheduled to open at the end of August. Here is a link to the article in the Tribune.

    http://www.sanluisobispo.com/news/business/article74445252.html

  5. Any idea what will happen to the Haggen on Artesia in Redondo Beach? it see

  6. So now very confused about future af Haggens Flagstaff location .Does the sale of core stores to Albertsons do anything for Flagstaff location or is it just stuck in bankruptcy ? Any news?

    • Whatever happens in the bankruptcy case now has no bearing on the fate of the Flagstaff location, since that store’s lease was rejected. Haggen gave up any hope of selling the store and walked away from it.

      Haggen Property South LLC is the leaseholder, but that’s actually a separate entity from Haggen itself. So whatever happens with that location is up to Haggen Property South to determine – they don’t have to file anything with the bankruptcy court to state their plans, so we won’t know any news unless or until they decide to announce anything themselves.

      • My local Haggen’s (at this date) is STILL shuttered and I need a grocery store! It was formerly a Safeway. It is the 8740 E. Broadway Blvd.,Tucson AZ 85710. On the list it reads: “lease rejected” what does THAT mean?

        • It means Haggen has walked away from it and it’s up to the landlord to find a new tenant. The same goes for my store in upland that I worked at and loved. It’s a sad situation.

  7. Wondering ,any news on Flagstaff AZ. haggens .Does anyone know if Albertsons would be taking this location back ? Albertsons owned this property and sold to Haggens still vacant any word at all . Quite the mystery here. This store was on rejected lease ,but you have confirmed that Haggens LLC was owner . Help just need some info thanks Gary

  8. Any ideas what will happen to the one on western in San Pedro

  9. What will happen to the rejected stores. Arroyo Grande is walking distance from my home

    • I’m no expert but it will probably be an Albertsons again,,,,, the landlord of the shopping center, does not want a fly by night independent store to go in and then pack it up in two years,,,, plus there are no “This space for lease signs” any where,,,, so im putting my money on Albertsons, ,,,,,

      • Thank you for that. I have heard from an Albertson’s employee in the north county that Albersons is the landlord of the center and the only reason for not moving back yet was because they had to justify the low bid they got. Employee also said she was told that it will be an Albertsons again in the Summer.

        • Actually the owner of the center is investc but I beleive Albertsons owns the building through another company

          • May be true. As a Realtor I have access to real estate data and this is what I found.

            Current owner of the building:
            HAGGEN PROPERTY HOLDINGS III LLC,
            1132 W BRANCH ST
            ARROYO GRANDE, CA 93420
            APN: 007-787-011
            Use: Grocery, Supermarket

            ABS CA-GL LLC Sold building to HAGGEN PROPERTY SOUTH LLC 4/15 total $5,654,000 which included multiple parcels including the AG store.

            Quick Claim: 7/15 HAGGEN PROPERTY SOUTH LLC to HAGGEN PROPERTY HOLDINGS III LLC

            My guess is that Albertsons has a trust deed (the lender) and will get the building back through the Bankruptcy settlement , but that will take time. If my guess is wrong, and If there is a lender involved, it can be sold to anyone that has enough money to buy the building.

            There is also an owner of Walmart and other parcels–Starbucks, Trader Joes, the bank in the center; SPHEAR INVESTMENTS LLC ETAL – who may also own most of parking lot . Hard to be sure, who owns a few of the stores Officmax etc. and the main parking lot. APN: 007-787-010

            EPT Arroyo Inc. owns the theater and part of the parking lot.

            In & Out owns their building.

  10. Any news on Flagstaff location,it’s on rejected lease list however Haggens owns this property?????? ThanksGary

  11. Any news on 1416 rt 66 Flagstaff AZ. .this store was on the rejected leases list ,however Haggens actually owns this location. Is it up for auction ? I don’t hear anything about this location except rejected lease can I get some help on this one thanks Gary

  12. What is going on with the one in Lomita, I saw it on the auction list. Did anybody buy it?

  13. We should just turn it into a win co.:-)

  14. Any other news lately? Our union is saying that our Upland store was all worked out and albertsons will be coming back. I don’t totally trust the union but if they are spreading false info and not verifying it there are going to be so many pissed off people. Upland was added to the rejected lease list and I wonder since Haggen walked away if that helped the landlord work out the deal with Albertsons? If you know anything please post! Thank you!

    • I’m still keeping an eye out for updates, but there’s been very little in the way of news lately. Unfortunately, once a lease is rejected, any store sale is a private transaction between the landlord and the proposed buyer, and notice doesn’t have to be filed with the bankruptcy court. So if any deal is in the works, we probably won’t see any evidence of it unless it’s announced locally by the landlord or the buyer.

  15. Any news yet on what will become of Haggen in Long Beach, Ca?

  16. But haggens owns flagstaff location

  17. How do they walk away when havens is leaseholder

  18. Are you going to be updating this as time goes on? I ask because I was an employee at the Upland Ca store since it opened as Albertsons in 2007 and Albertsons bid on it but it didn’t sell. Do you know why? We would like Albertsons to come back and so do the shoppers. If they come back we will all be called back and we would love our jobs and store back. Any info you can provide would be Helpful. Thank you!

    • Yes, this list will be updated for as long as there are updates to be made!

      And I don’t know the specifics about what happened with the Upland store, except that Albertsons’ original bid was one of a handful that were “subject to lease negotiations” – so something apparently didn’t work out with the leaseholder, and Albertsons’ bid fell through. Sorry for you and your co-workers that it didn’t work out, but there’s been no update on the status of the store since then.

      • thank you for the info. We were thinking it was due to the lease. We are frustrated with it all because Upland was one of Albertsons best stores.

  19. What is up with the arroyo grande store what a waste what will it be now?

  20. I had asked about Flagstaff leaseholder ,you said it was bbva compass bank . They are my bank they had branch in Albertsons/Haggens they told me absolutely not leaseholder ,they we’re tenant inside of store only and had to move.albertsons owned this property and sold to Haggens,my landlord owns the rest of property.Albertsons had bought this part of shopping center previously .Sure seams as though Albertsons must have got this property returned as forfeit ?

  21. Who is the leaseholder ,Flagstaff Az. Location.I understood Haggens had purchased from Albertsons now just a mystery as to what happens with this location ?

  22. Any idea what the status is of Haggen in Long Beach, Ca?

    • It’s on the list of rejected leases, so Haggen has handed the store back to its landlord (KFT Enterprises) and left it up to them to find a new tenant.

    • Rumor has it that the Spring Street location in Long Beach will become an Orchard Supply Hardware. I’m not sure how credible the rumor is, but it’s an interesting one!

      • I don’t see how haggen in long beach can become an orchards supply store. Orchards was bought out by Lowes and there’s a Lowes right down the street. Literally, a few blocks away……

  23. Why is the category of stores that is still for sale not instead being auctioned off like all the others. Are the locations considered more or less attractive than the stores being auctioned?

    • Those stores were up for sale as part of last week’s auctions, but they didn’t sell. So they’re still available. Haggen hasn’t said yet whether it plans to hold another auction, or just try to sell them off piecemeal.

  24. thank you for the update on Haggen

  25. Why did certain stores already get gelsons and smart & final? Why didn’t they get to be bid against? I think it’s really dumb to have gelsons go into these stores that already failed as Haggen. I already heard customers complain and say they are gonna be shopping at the new store “gelsons” cause it’s just as expensive if not more expensive then Haggen. Are we gonna see more stores closing again after all this? Good choice on doing your research people

    • Gelson’s is no Haggen. Haggen is a Vons/Albertson’s with higher prices. Gelson’s is a true upscale store with high quality, gourmet and specialty foods with superior service. People in California know of Gelson’s, they did not know of Haggen.

      • If you have ever been to an original Haggen they are very much Upscale and offer a lot. The stores here were never finished. They were supposed to make them in to the Haggen banner in 4 phases but of course that never happened.

    • See the newest update at the very top – both stores submitted package-deal bids for a set of stores, and others were given the opportunity to outbid them. But no one did, so now the sales are final.

  26. When will you have the results of the auctions?
    We are waiting patiently..

  27. What of the Haggen’s location at 1636 West 25th Street, San Pedro, CA 90732? You only listed the one in San Pedro on Western.

  28. Brian Addison says:

    Alberton’s brilliant. Haggen’s idiots.

  29. The store at 1401 12th Street in Bellingham was not originally a Haggen, it was Fairhaven Market.

  30. Can I assume that stores are taking coupons on all sale items?

  31. Mario Arreola says:

    We would like Stater Bros. To take over the store
    On Sepulveda Boulevard and palms we need a good store like stater brothers in our area

  32. Teresa Castillo says:

    This change is good for so many employees. Hopefully albertsons comes back
