Albertson's

Second largest grocery chain in the United States (after Kroger).

Bought American Stores Company in 1999

Owns Lucky, Jewel Food Stores, Acme Markets, Osco Drug, Sav-On as a result of that purchase.

-- ALERT! -- IMPORTANT!

unknown!!!

2,500 stores

36 states including:

AZ, AR, CA, CO, FL, GA, ID, IA, KS, LA, MI, MO, MT, NE, NV, NM, ND, OK, OR, SD, TN, TX, UT, WA, WY

After years of advertising " No hassles! No card needed!" Albertson's, one of the key bastions of card-free shopping, has started a card program.

While some locations, (AZ, NM and Southern CA), still do not have a card program, Albertsons has been quietly rolling it out throughout the rest of the country.
