Albertsons to build store in fast-growing Star
Another new Albertsons store is set to open in Ada County - this time in the community of Star.
The company purchased an 11.6 acre chunk of land on State St. near Can-Ada Rd., and is set to build a new store.
"We are extremely excited about the opportunity to both serve and support the Star community," Communications and Community Relations Manager Kathy Holland said. "Currently, we are working on plans for this new store location, however do not yet have a timeline in place."
Although Star is the smallest city in Ada County, it saw the fastest growth rate of any city over 5,000 residents in Idaho, according to Census data crunched by HomeSnacks. From 2010-2016, Star added 40% more people - not including the outlying areas.
The grocer has remodeled nearly every store it owns in Idaho, and has expanded with the purchase of Paul's Markets and planned construction of new stores in Boise's Barber Valley and Meridian. It also is building a new store at Broadway and Beacon that will replace a small aging store on the corner.
