After selling local gas and convenience stations to Stinker in 2011 – Albertsons-branded gas stations are beginning to return to the market.

The first from-the-ground up new Albertsons Express in the area is now open at ParkCenter Blvd. and Apple St. on the site of a former Pizza Hut.

The fuel center has a variety of modern features, including a walk-in beer cooler, digital soda fountain and more.  It also includes a drive-through around the back of the store where items can be purchased without leaving a vehicle.

The pumps are the first in the state to use EMV chips, according to Albertsons officials. 

Albertsons also acquired a gas station at its former Paul’s Market location on Lake Hazel – and plans at least one more at a forthcoming store in Barber Valley.
