The history of Albertsons
Albertsons actually was started by a man named Albertson! Joe Albertson, to be exact. He opened up his store in 1939 in Boise, Idaho, which quickly gained a great reputation for having all the latest perks, from free parking to an ice cream store.
Albertson put all his profits right back into expanding his business, and expand it has. Today, there are over 2,200 Albertsons locations across the United States!
Albertsons stands out from the crowd with perks
When Joe Albertson opened up his very first grocery store back in 1939, he added a lot of special perks so as to draw in more customers. It worked, and the idea is still working well today!
Things have changed a bit since the 1930s though, so it's no surprise that the perks have too. For instance, lots of the locations now have banks and pharmacies included. The newer stores that have enough space have things like a Starbcuks coffee counter, pizza made in-store, juice and salad bars, and a wide range of prepared foods ready to take home and eat.
They've also tested a 'Shop N'Scan" system that lets shoppers check out as they add things to their basket so they can pay before leaving the store. It's been removed from some stores recently.
One option that has stuck around is the option to shop online and pick up your groceries in store or have them delivered to you.
