The 67,000-square-foot Horn Lake store, which will be located at the corner of Goodman and Horn Lake roads, will be the first store in DeSoto or Shelby counties to feature a garden center and a promotional center. "The promotional center will be like a store within a store," said Gerald Melville, division vice president for Seessels by Albertsons. "This is a new concept and it will feature a variety of promotional items that will constantly change." The store also will have a butcher store, bakery, service deli and pharmacy. About 250 full- and part-time jobs will be created with the opening of the store.

In addition to Albertsons' ill-fated garden centers, Albertsons also seemed to have another trick up its sleeve in those halcyon days of around 2000, the "Promotional" department. Here's a c. 2000 article about the opening of a "Seessel's by Albertsons" (which was an Albertsons in all but name). I'm sure there were others like this. This seems to be a different from a dollar department or a seasonal department (both of which are pretty common), does anyone remember these? What did they have?
