Albertsons on Broadway Gets Modern Makeover and Grand Opening Saturday
It's not that often that you get excited for the opening of a grocery store but maybe that's changing. The way we get our groceries and interact with our stores has changed too. I don't remember growing up watching dad have a microbrew while mom was getting milk on aisle 10.
Things have changed! Mom and dad are wine sampling while the oldest is choosing cereal. That's a real thing now hence the opening of Albertson's on Broadway.
We've started seeing grocery stores add craft beer sections over the last few years due to the growing demand. I feel like stores are having to change like the audience is. When was the last time you checked out at a store and was snaked around extra aisles of the things - you might have missed.
I think Albertsons is being smart by giving us what we've all wanted. It doesn't hurt that Albertson's corporate headquarters is just blocks away.
Albertsons has even introduced a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Molly Travis to assist in everything nutrition. You can even reach out for information on tours, workshops and diet counseling.
I'm heading over in a few minutes to take a tour. I'll be back later with full photo recap and what else I learned. Here's the details on the grand opening below.
