Albertson’s has announced that it will be closing its full-service grocery in Milton on Sept. 9th, and that decision is not sitting well with residents of north Pierce County, nor their business organization.

Fife Milton Edgewood Chamber of Commerce is calling for its members and neighbors to rally in support of the store and its employees tomorrow afternoon between 3 and 5:30 p.m. at 2800 Milton Way.

Chamber staff note that all of the economic growth in the surrounding three cities make it more important that residents have multiple places to shop, and they want to send that message to Albertson’s executives in Phoenix who have made the closure decision.

If you agree, but are unable to participate in the Wednesday rally, contact April at the Chamber via email to learn how you can express your opinion.
