Albertsons to Close Some Fla. Locations

Boise, Idaho Albertsons plans to close some of its locations in Florida.

The company plans to close stores in Ocala; Tallahassee; and West Palm Beach. The company also plans to close a location in Orlando.

In its letter to the state, the company said it will close the stores effective Feb. 26.

In June, Publix Super Markets agreed to buy more than half of the Albertsons stores in Florida.

Publix has said it would be holding job fairs and interviewing the estimated 5,000 Albertsons workers whose jobs are being eliminated.
