Stater Bros. acquires two Albertsons stores

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — Stater Bros. has entered an agreement to purchase two stores from Albertsons in Lake Elsinore and Hesperia.

Stater Bros. said it expects to take possession of the locations from Albertsons, a Supervalu subsidiary, in mid-May. The California-based supermarket chain also said that the stores would receive several upgrades, including wider aisles, expanded and new full-service departments and energy-efficient refrigeration, skylights and recycling centers.

"The Stater Bros. supermarket family is very proud to provide this greatly enhanced and larger Stater Bros. supermarket to better serve our long-time and 'valued' [Lake Elsinore and Hesperia] customers."
