Hehe. I think that's the best way I've ever heard it described...

We'll see if Save Mart keeps the interiors the way they are or if they do a massive remodeling campaign when they take over next month. I did not like that they expanded the store in Clovis just to shutter a few years later.

The HESPERIA CA Albertsons was originally a PayLess Drug Store. The site was demolished to build a LUCKY/SAV-ON "combo store".

Yet, the merger with Albertsons took place BEFORE the store ever opened as LUCKY. Yet, the interior was already completed as LUCKY.

To this day, the store has the LUCKY interior (colors, signs, etc)...yet has been an Albertsons since the store opened!

The former LUCKY in RANCHO CUCAMONGA CA on Haven @ the 210 is FINALLY being completely remodeled.

At the merger, it became an independent. Then VONS. VONS did a quick facelift...yet never a complete remodel. Still had the LUCKY freezer and liquor cases.

Site is now getting the SAFEWAY LIFESTYLE remodel.

Last I checked, these Albertson's locations / former Lucky stores also still had their pre-merger ''Lucky style'' interior decor:

West Covina (Eastland Plaza)

Monrovia (Huntington Drive)

Pomona (Garey Ave. @ Foothill Blvd.)


The current Glendora Albertsons-Savon (on Route 66 @ Glendora Ave.) is a former Newberry's acquired by Lucky just pre-merger, and ultimately opened as Albertson's.

Its design is relatively unique (unlike other Albertson's, and nothing like any Lucky stores that preceded it), which of course makes me wonder which entity actually created it.

Well, I guess we go to the same stores. See this earlier post of mine that's now on the ALL Save-Mart, Albertsons, Supervalu, and Lucky News Posts thread:
The three Albertsons I frequent most often are:
  • Monrovia: Former Lucky/Sav-On; still has Lucky interior
    Arcadia (Live Oak and Tyler): Always (I think) an Albertsons; older, smaller store.
    Glendora: Fairly new large store, beautiful interior. Is this the one that's like their current "lifestyle" remodel? It looked this way before SuperValu, so I'm not sure.

I'm still wondering about Max Foods Montebello and the Albertsons across the street.

The Alhambra Albertsons / former Lucky was remodeled and looks beautiful.

Albertsons has sold this site to Stater Brothers.
