I almost forgot about the FREE Rice-A-Roni OR Pasta Roni until about 6 p.m. on Sunday and I made a mad dash to Albertsons.
On the windows of the store, they had signage up that their last day as Albertson would be on Tuesday (3/17) and on Thursday (3/19) they would be reopen as Haagen Markets.
I remember when Albertsons was in Northern California and then they completed got out of the NorCal market but it was nice to find them in Southern California.
When I first got into couponing, grocery stores in California were still doubling and even tripling coupons and Albertsons was considered a hot grocery store.
Those days have been long gone.
Albertsons basically nailed it’s own coffin when they went to the everyday low prices and got rid of it’s loyalty card.
