Albertsons plans (another) new store for Meridian

Albertsons has purchased a 16-acre piece of land on Eagle Rd. at Amity Rd. in Meridian for a future store.

Communications and community relations manager Kathy Holland said the store is currently in the design phase and won’t be open in 2018 but “a bit further out.”  The store will fall under the company’s traditional Albertsons branding, unlike a new Market Street Idaho store planned for Eagle and Fairview Ave about four miles away.

Developer The Land Group applied in 2016 to annex the site and an additional 24 acres into the City of Meridian. That additional land would be used for single-family homes.

The new store will join a flurry of Albertsons projects in the Boise area, including a new store in Star, new stores on Broadway and Fairview Ave. and other projects below:
