    IMHO~~I will NEVER shop at the Redlands Albertsons again~~I tried to return a pair of socks, that I bought there and tried on today for the first time. The socks tore and I took it back to the store where I bought them. I was treated as if I return things all the time~~which I don’t. I am pretty sure this is the first time I have ever returned ANYTHING. I didn’t have a receipt~so the refund was $1.39 way BELOW the price I paid. I can promise you one thing~~I WILL NEVER SHOP AT ANY OF YOUR STORES AGAIN!! I believe word of mouth is the very best advertisement~~I am now telling everyone I know not to waste their money at your stores and I hope Wal~mart and City Market put ALL your stores out of business!! I transferred my prescriptions and I never took the $1.39~~told the clerk to keep the money and the socks!!
