Albertsons

I love fresh squeezed OJ, so I've been buying the oranges on sale at Albertsons $1.69 for 4lb. I bought 2 bags yesterday and got a CAT for $1 off next produce purchase. Went back today and bought 2 more bags, used the $1 CAT and got a CAT for $1.50 off next produce purchase.
I love freshly squeezed OJ too and glad I live near Jons where the sale on navel oranges has been 6lb/99cent this week...bought over 20lbs. Last week when the sale was 4lb/$99cent (1 day special), I bought over 30lbs. For the past month or so the sale on navel oranges at Jons has been great. Mom has been storing the oranges in both our refridges and in open cardboard boxes to prolong their shelf life.

woohoo! I just played the 5 P&G item game and won $10 off ^_^

Supervalu has sold the Albertsons chain to Cerberus. The beginning of the end for Albertsons. When Cerberus acquired some Albertsons stores in the 2006 breakup of Albertsons and former American Stores divisions, they got 655 stores. http://dealbook.nytimes.com/2013/...supervalu/ http://www.latimes.com/business/m...2330.story
Now, only 200 remain.

http://www.reuters.com/article/20...5520130110
"Cerberus will most likely do what they did six years ago with Albertsons - sell, close, sell, close," supermarket consultant David Livingston said.
"They are not in this because they have a passion for running grocery stores. You don't buy failing grocery stores because you want to be in the grocery business," Livingston said.

History of how Albertsons LLC (Cerberus) closed stores http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albertsons_LLC

Albertsons LLC (Cerberus) also does not have a Preferred Card savings program - having discontinued it soon after the acquisition - so we're likely to see that go, as well. They do double coupons in their Dallas, Texas stores...

Thanks! I'm counting on you to tell me when it is time to use up my gift cards (sorry, i know I always ask this) is it time now? or do you think the new company will accept our gift cards?

Albertsons will likely still be around a year from now, only with fewer stores and operating somewhat differently (likely no more Preferred card and certainly no more $20 Catalina for gift card promos...this company just hasn't been doing that). Probably 30-45 stores in our region will close or be sold in the next year, to begin with. There won't be one buyer in this region for the stores unlike Chicago where they are purchasing Jewel/Osco and it is likely to be sold again, probably to Kroger. Stater Bros. alone has indicated they would like to purchase up to 8 Albertsons stores in Southern California. Others will likely go to ethnic chains, Gelson's is looking for stores to fill the gap between its West Los Angeles and Orange County stores (it is converting an Albertsons in Long Beach), plus The Fresh Market and Aldi are coming into the region...and Whole Foods is on the hunt for new stores. We might even see a few locations go to Vons or Ralphs. Even if a store location is busy, that won't stop this company from selling the store location. This is a real estate deal not a grocery store operation deal.

The only chain I'd be concerned about right now if I had any gift cards or points left is Fresh & Easy. They may close down earlier than expected.

Yeah, not a good sign to be sold to a company named for the mythical dog guarding the gates to hades [wikipedia.org].

That would be nice! I've watched Stater commercials blasted across SoCal for years. They're mainly in the Inland Empire, so I have yet to set foot in one. And yet I've wanted to try them out.

My Sunday only LA Times subscription needs to be renewed. I tried to pay online and the charge is $31.20, last time I renewed it was $9.88. Has anyone had any luck getting a cheaper rate?

My friend and I were able to renew at $9.88 by calling customer service

I decided to stick w/ having no e-bill (didn't agree to their online whatchamacallit), so their only option was to send me letter w/ my renewal of $9.88, giving me the option to pay the fee online, which I did and it's a one time payment so they can't auto charge me at the end of the subscription. This would be my 3rd year of receiving the LA Times at the $9.88 price.

I just received my invoice yesterday. Same $20 for a 4-day, 52 week subscription as the Groupon I started the subscriptions on from January 2012.

I did a deal a year + ago for $10 Sunday only. It should have auto renewed BUT my bank changed my debit card ( due to some data breach on their end) -- I forgot about this so LAT ended up sending me an invoice for the $10. They called a couple of times first but I was out both times.

LAT really does want to keep their subscribers.

Also have a very old daily subscription which does not have an auto bill set. Anyone else think paying for two years at once is a ridiculous option? What happens to my subscription if they go bankrupt?! I just renew like 3 months at a time.
