Thank You, Boise.

On Wednesday, April 22nd, members from the local community gathered for a Grand Re-Opening Celebration at Albertsons on Eagle and McMillan in Boise. While some might think of store re-openings as a chance to present a new look and special deals, it is so much more than that. It’s about giving back to the community, providing new opportunities and building an atmosphere where everyone can come together.
The event started around 1:30p, when the crew from Boise State University rolled out the 2014 Fiesta Bowl Trophy. Bronco fans approached with excitement throughout the day, where they had an exclusive opportunity to catch a glimpse of the beautiful trophy, snap a photo and even share a laugh with Buster Bronco.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony kicked off at 3p, with an introduction to the local Albertsons team, followed by check presentations to the Rocky Mountain High School Track Team, Cole Valley Christian High School and Special Olympics Idaho.
The highlight of the day came when Ian Bott, a Special Olympics athlete and Albertsons employee, gave an inspirational speech on his appreciation for the support he has felt throughout his career at Albertsons and involvement with Special Olympics Idaho. “I appreciate Albertsons giving people with disabilities a chance to work hard and do well in the community,” said Bott. “My store has supported my involvement in Special Olympics and my education at Boise State University. I’m grateful for my great coworkers and a job that I love, and I’m also grateful that Albertsons supports my community through their partnership with Special Olympics Idaho.”
The celebration continued during the course of the evening with interactive trivia, prize giveaways and plenty of joy throughout the store. Events of this nature are not possible without the support of our great community. From everyone here at Albertsons, thank you.
You made it all happen.
