Former Gordman’s space to be an Albertsons. But not for shopping

Sure, you hope a Target will open in SE Boise some day.

But it won’t be at the Southshore Shopping Center.

Nor will anywhere else to shop – for now.

Albertsons Companies will fill the remainder of the former Kmart at Apple and Parkcenter, according to filings with the City of Boise.  The company already occupies a portion of the space – and until last year, discount retailer Gordmans took the rest.

When Gordmans closed, Albertsons stepped in and took over the full space.

But it won’t be open to the public. Instead, according to filings, it will be used for storage to support the retailer’s so-called set store. A spokesperson previously told BoiseDev this is used for prototyping and other activities that support the company’s stores across the country. The store was moved up from California after the acquisition of Safeway in 2015.
