New products in fresh departments and more convenient offerings make the Palm Desert store your holiday planning headquarters.

FULLERTON, CA (Nov 5, 2013) — The construction crews are gone and the renovation is complete. Just in time for the holidays, Albertsons Palm Desert store stands ready to help residents celebrate the best of the season with plenty of fresh, new offerings in their remodeled store. A grand re-opening ceremony is set for Wed., Nov 6, 10 a.m., at the 42095 Washington Street at 42nd location.

“Store renovations are always challenging, but they’re always worth the effort and we’re anxious to have our customers check out the changes we’ve made to their neighborhood store,” commented Palm Desert Store Director John Stoffel.

The Palm Desert store team is focused on offering their guests the best service possible. That’s why the self check-out lanes have been removed. Plus, the cart corrals have been relocated inside, keeping the carts away from the desert’s harsh summer and winter weather.

More Food Choices and Offerings
The biggest change to the Albertsons Palm Desert store is its offerings. A variety of specialty sets featuring more natural and organic foods have been added in each of the store’s major departments. With an eye on convenience, customers will see new refrigerated cases featuring ‘Buy One, Get One Free’ meat and poultry packages, as well as ready-to-eat Guacamole, salsa, and bean and deviled egg trays located at the store’s entrance. The floral department has also been expanded and moved up front.

Football fans who prefer to enjoy their game while munching on a selection of tasty wings will be thrilled over the new wing bar added to the service deli. The salad case has also been upgraded to include a greater variety of salad choices. And to compliment game-time snacking, be sure to check out the new assortment of craft beers and micro-brews added to the liquor department.

Be it large or small celebrations, hostesses can count on creating tempting appetizer trays featuring Dietz & Watson cheeses and meats combined with Albertsons fresh pre-cut vegetables and fruits. And of course, Albertsons Butcher Block is always the priority destination for STEAKHOUSE CHOICE™ premium beef. This prestigious USDA Choice label is reserved only for tender cuts of beef that meet the most rigorous standards and is available at all Albertsons stores.

Albertsons is also proud to continue its giving tradition with this grand opening. In recognition of all the community does for the store, Stoffel and his team will make donations to FIND Food Bank and James Monroe Elementary School.

The Washington Ave. Palm Desert store will be open to serve the community daily from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. To arrange for a media tour, contact Lilia Rodriguez, communications/public affairs manager at (714) 306-5408.
