The TOP Food & Drug store located in Tacoma will close in four to six weeks, Haggen, Inc. announced today.

“Choosing to close this location is difficult knowing the impact it will have on our loyal customers and committed employees. We appreciate the patronage of our Tacoma residents and hope they will consider shopping at a Haggen location in the future,” said Clement Stevens, Senior Vice President of Merchandising at Haggen, Inc., which owns the TOP Food & Drug store in Tacoma.

The Tacoma TOP Food & Drug store is located at 3130 S. 23rd St., near where Tacoma's first Walmart is set to open later this month. Tacoma TOP Food & Drug has 64 employees, and Haggen, with the support of UFCW Local 367 and Bakers Local 9, is working to place employees at other Haggen stores in the region.
