Management at the Evergreen Albertsons informed 67 workers on Friday, Jan. 16, that the store will be closing on Feb. 19 after 12 years.

Someone who answered the phone at the store confirmed the information about the closing, which first came to the Courier in the form of an anonymous tip.

A checkout clerk at the store also told a shopper that the store was closing.

The company will attempt to find new jobs for the laid-off employees, and they will receive severance pay if they can't be placed, said corporate spokeswoman Christine Wilcox in Idaho.

The company is closing a store in Arizona, as well as three stores in Texas and four in Florida.

The Evergreen store, at 30931 Stagecoach Blvd., opened on March 26,1997. It has not been profitable, despite everyone's best efforts, Wilcox said.

A new tenant will be sought for the Albertsons building.
