More Changes On The Way For Wichita Falls Retail Landscape

Mike Hendren / News Talk 1290

Changes on the retail landscape will alter your grocery shopping experience just a bit by next month.  Word now is that Albertson’s-Wichita Falls has been forced to sell by the Federal Trade Commission.  Albertson’s acquired United Supermarkets a couple of months ago was apparently contingent upon Albertson’s selling their stores in Wichita Falls and Amarillo.

Lawrence Brothers, which owns stores in much smaller markets, appears to be taking a giant leap with moves into Wichita Falls and Amarillo.  Officials with Albertson’s tell News Talk 1290 the Wichita Falls store will make the jump by January 12 and will remain open throughout the transition.   Lawrence Brothers currently has stores in Seymour and Munday, as well as nine other locations across north and west Texas.

Officials with Albertson’s say customers should not experience any interruption in services and that Lawrence Brothers has purchased the entire inventories of both the Wichita Falls and Amarillo locations, so there will not be a ‘going out of business sale’ as such.
