    I was wondering who to contact in order for the people in Brea,ca, 92821, to get back on mailer list for weekly adds. Ever since Supervalu closed the store in Fullerton, we have not recieved adds. We would love to shop at your stores, but without adds to compare, we end up at the compations.

    I would really like to let the new owners of some of the problems I had with the previous owner and response to my complaints. You have inherits some great people but the few that are staying are going to another store or have been let go. I am really disappointed. The store I shop at I have been going to since it was Lucky’s . I have know all the managers because I do tell them when things are wrong. I need to be able to send a message to someone OTHER than the manager because they (in most part) don’t think they should do anything for the client..

    I was wondering who your advertising agency is for the Lake Havasu, Kingman, Bullhead City and Parker AZ area is.
    I represent a group of four radio stations that cover the entire tri-state area.
    We are based out of Lake Havasu City and our studios are located two blocks from the Albertsons Market.

    Thank you in advance,

    There are no websites/sample ads for the Lucky-Savon Food & Drug 6142 in South Gate CA and the 2 SuperSaver stores in Utah. Why don’t they have websites?

      Good question, Luckysaver! The stores you’ve asked about are different from our traditional grocery stores, and because we have such a limited number of them, we’ve not developed websites for them. If you have any other questions just email us at AlbertsonsHelpers@supervalu.com. Thanks for posting! ~Zachary

    I am not sure who to contact since on the contact us page there are not direct links to the people in charge of different stores. I am writing this letter after 9 years of shopping at the Albertson’s in Saginaw Texas. I love the new store and the carts. The inside is amazing. Also nice touch with the TCU store…Go Frogs. However, the parking lot is a mess. Today there were dirty diapers, fast food bags, and just a ton of trash all over the parking lot. This is not the first time I have noticed the amount of trash that Albertson’s has in the parking lot. I also shop at the Albertson’s in Keller on Golden Triangle. It does not look like this at all. There were tons of birds flying around the parking lot eating the trash. I don’t understand why bother with the new store if you aren’t going to keep the parking lot clean. It is gross. If that Albertson’s wasn’t the closest to my job I would not shop there. Can I suggest lots of trash cans in the parking lot to encourage people to throw their trash in when they are shopping. I don’t know if that would help but it is so disgusting the amount of trash.

      Thank you for letting us know about the condition of the parking lot at the Saginaw Albertsons, April. I have made the appropriate people aware of this, as well as your suggestions to improve the appearance of the lot. I am glad that you enjoy the store overall, but I’m sorry that the parking lot doesn’t reflect what’s inside. Thank you again for your feedback and I hope you have a wonderful week! ~Marie

    I work for Albertsons as a cashier for 20 plus years. The coupon ad for eggs 99 cents general Mills cereal selected varieties etc. Ad was poorly written on coupons on to what items for General Mills cereal could be bought with the coupon. I as a checker was ready for a break down in checkstand after 2 hours of telling customer only the pictures of cereal on coupon these seemed to only work. Customers were upset threaten to call corporate because they did understand coupon and WHICH SELECTED ITEMS were available as usually for all our coupons. These coupons need to be relooked over on how there advertised it makes for unhappy cashiers and customers.Very poor advertising.I hope this change for sake of all.

      Thanks so much for your post. We know that there was confusion with that particular coupon, and your division’s team did its best to help customers understand which items applied to the coupon at the shelf when they made their selections. The Marketing team has received the feedback, too. We sincerely appreciate your genuine concern for our customers as you explained the applicable items when the coupon was presented. We’ll do better next time.

    Thank you for the post. I am writing in response to a recent marketing poster noticed in multiple store. The poster advertised “cheep” chicken. Was this a misspelling? This was pointed out to me by numerous comical customers in store.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    • Christine Christine 28/04/2014 at 8:34 am

      Hi Mike, the spelling for “cheep” is intentional – and we do get comments from time to time that we are spelling-challenged, but it’s meant to mimic the “peeps” that chickens make. Hope that helps! Thanks for your question and have a great day! ~ Christine
