It was only December 2014 that we learned of a new grocery store coming to California. Haggen was described as Safeway meets Whole Foods.

I have to admit that I’ve never shopped at Haggen since a location was not close to me. And honestly, other than news reports, Haggen was really not on my radar. I cannot remember talking to anyone who had shopped there.

A few weeks ago Haggen filed a $1 billion suit against Albertsons for undermining their store rollout.

“The road to expansion has not been smooth for Haggen, which acquired 146 stores in January when Albertsons and Vons divested 168 locations to satisfy federal regulators during a merger with Safeway.

The Bellingham, Wash.-based company grew from 18 stores to 164 in a matter of months, with 11 locations opening in Orange County by early summer.

Almost immediately trouble erupted as customers balked at high prices and limited inventory. In July Haggen began laying off six to 10 employees at each of its new stores.

Around the same time, Albertsons sued its new rival for more than $41 million it claims Haggen owes for inventory that changed hands during the store conversions.”
