Everyone has good news ... Wal-Mart will complete the acquisition of SuperValu and Albertsons brands around next year on Memorial Day, which buys out 2,550 locally-owned "SuperValu-Albertsons " grocery stores for re-branding as expanded/re-modeled Wal-Mart Supercenters, which were a chain of hypermarkets that carry everything Wal-Mart Discount Stores do in addition to full-line supermarkets.

All 2,550 Wal-Mart supercenters (which were a replacement of locally-owned "SuperValu/Albertsons " grocery stores), also feature a garden center, a full-service pharmacy, a family fun center, a SunTrust financial center, hair and nail salons, video rental by either Movie Gallery or Hollywood Video, a branch from a local bank, a tire and oil change shop, an optical store, a 1-hour photo processing lab, a portrait studio, and a food court with full-menu McDonald's.

Around next year on Memorial Day, Wal-Mart Stores will cease building any locally-owned "SuperValu/Albertsons " grocery stores, but will now only build 150,000 square-feet discount stores and 250,000 square-feet supercenters instead. Also, the Albertsons and SuperValu brands will be phased out by Wal-Mart Stores around two years later on Labor Day.

All 2,550 Wal-Mart supercenters (which were a replacement of locally-owned "SuperValu/Albertsons " grocery stores), average from 200,000 to 250,000 square-feet, opens 24 hours per day and 7 days per week, and has 30 full-service checkouts.

With many "Toys 'R' Us/Kids 'R' Us" stores that are to be closed, the "Toys 'R' Us Toy Box" department with a full-line of toys and games will be located in any Wal-Mart store by either additional 150,000 square-feet discount stores or nearly 250,000 square-feet supercenters. Around two years later on Labor Day, there will be a total of over 6,000 Wal-Mart stores in the United States (5,000 Wal-Mart supercenters and 1,000 Wal-Mart discount stores).

Where do you get your idiotic information from? Are you just stirring up another rumor or are you just stupid?

This Derek guy works for Wal-Mart and this is just another marketing strategy that he has come up with. Go ahead and shop at Wal-Mart and you to can live the dream of scrubbing their toilets for 6.50 an hour and no benefits. But at least you might save a dollar.

I have worked for Supervalu as a former member of Super G and Stop and Shop. These stores may or may not be bought out by Wal-mart but there is no doubt that they are struggling. I see everyday how badly these stores are failing. The end of the Supervalu era is near.

WAL-MART is affordable and has better quality than the crap many of the super markets put on the shelves. If WAL-MART is so horrible how is it that they have many 15, 20 and 30 year career employees in all levels of positions?
I will shop WAL-MART for everything I need because it is what I can afford AND it is a great place!!

I work for Walmart, I am an employee of that soulless, horrid company.

When I first saw this, I almost wanted to cry! Albertsons employees have a job and workplace that we at my store envy! Walmart openly despises their employees and ESPECIALLY their customers!

They are Satan, the great blue hitler, and NO ONE wants this to ever happen!

As a member of the OURWalmart Organization, me and several thousands throughout the country are working hard to make Walmart a company that recognizes and respects the humanity of their workers and the communities they operate in. I will fight to the DEATH to get for us what Albertsons employees already enjoy.

On a closing note, there are Associates of my Walmart store who have actually lost their lives due to the treatment they recieve from that horrible place. I pray for the prosperity and success of every union establishment from sea to shining sea!

As I mentioned in another post, I work for Walmart. You are gravely mistaken in your perception of how Walmart treats their workers.

You are free to shop Walmart all you like, but know that you are avidly supporting a place that kills their workers (NO, I am NOT hyperbolizing here), hates their customers enough to not bother providing staff to help them, robs the local economy MILLIONS of dollars through tax evasion and other legal shenanigans, and puts out life insurance policies on their workers.

I love my country enough to not buy there when I can afford it.

Actually, a merger gives them a higher power to phase out whoever they want because they now own them. But by Memorial day next year Albertson's and Safeway will already be merged. Maybe that is the merger that they hope will keep them in business and not under Walmart's foot.
