Old Pizza Hut to become Albertons fuel center

Albertsons LLC continues to expand its fuel center outlets in the Boise market, after previous ownership jettisoned the strategy. 

In 2011, former Albertsons owner Supervalu sold 11 local Albertsons Express convenience and fuel center locations to Boise-based Stinker.

The local Albertsons stores, now owned by Boise-based Albertsons LLC have been tip-toeing back into the gas station market, with the purchase of a former Paul’s Market grocery store and fuel location in Lake Hazel Rd.  BoiseDev also was the first to report on a new fuel center at a planned location in Barber Valley.

Albertsons has filed to tear down the Pizza Hut building at the corner of Apple St. and ParkCenter Blvd., adjacent to its flagship store in the Southshore Shopping Center.  The company’s general headquarters are down the street.

Filings with the City of Boise indicate the grocer will build a 3,000 square foot convenience store with six fuel dispensers. According to a recent filing with the SEC, the company owns 385 fuel centers – many of them branded under the Safeway banner.

This is one of a flurry of projects by Albertsons in the area.
