BREAKING: Riverton Safeway Closing
The Intermountain Division of Albertson Companies announced today plans to close the Riverton Safeway.
“Like all retailers, we are constantly evaluating the performance of our stores. Closing an underperforming store is always a tough decision and made after careful review and extensive deliberation,” explained Kathy Holland, Communication and Community Manager for The Intermountain Division of Albertsons (Safeway’s parent company).
All Riverton employees will be affected by the closure and there are no plans to close the Lander store.
“Our human resource department is working with the affected employees and the labor unions to attempt to find the employees other work that is both consistent with applicable law and/or labor agreements,” said Holland.
Albertsons anticipates store operations will cease on or before the end of October 2017.
