Albertsons continues to remodel the stores it acquired from Paul's Market - including the McCall store on Lake St.  

The location is undergoing a large expansion on the site, and the current building is seeing a significant remodel, with new fixtures, finishes and inventory. The portion of the building that used to house a small amount of variety goods like clothing has been removed and replaced with an expanded structure. New exterior architectural detailing matches the "log cabin" look of many buildings in the resort town.  

The expanded store will feature a pharmacy for the first time, as Albertsons has acquired McCall Drug and Blue Grouse Books on nearby 2nd Street. That location has been converted to a small Albertsons/Savon pharmacy, but will relocate to the former Paul's building later this year, according to employees with McCall Drug.  

The store will also have McCall's first Starbucks location (Shore Lodge serves a small selection of Starbucks products in its gift shop), as well as a second floor mezzanine and the usual Albertsons array of produce, meats and floral department features.
