New Albertsons store gives McCall shoppers an upgrade

During the summer of 2017, visitors to the former Paul’s Market might have felt like they were shopping in a construction zone. After being acquired by Albertsons Companies, a new store was built literally over the top of the old supermarket – and remained open for business nearly every day.

Now complete, the new store features greatly expanded selection, as well as new bakery, produce, beer and fresh meat departments. New fixtures and finishes are seen throughout the store.

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 two-story structure. New exterior architectural detailing matches the “log cabin” look of many buildings in the resort town.

The expanded store feature a pharmacy for the first time, after Albertsons acquired McCall Drug and Blue Grouse Books on nearby 2nd Street.

The store also has 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 with outdoor seating.
