Spokesperson Connie Yates went on to say, “Closing an underperforming store is always a tough decision, but sometimes a necessary step to position our company for greater success and growth. We are working toward providing opportunities for the employees of these stores at other Albertsons and Tom Thumb locations. Our stores have proudly served north Texas since 1948, and we remain committed to all the markets we serve. In the Dallas – Fort Worth area, since the beginning of 2018, we have remodeled multiple stores, opened our first full service Tom Thumb convenience store, and have two stores under construction that will open next year.”
