Is There Anyone Who May Be Able to Figure This Out?

     This is something I've been wondering about for a while, and I was wondering if there is anyone or any former Albertsons employees who might remember what any of the store numbers were for these three stores, or have some record of it:

Confirmed Former Albertsons Florida Stores, but Store Numbers Unknown (These stores are 4337, 4339, and 4342, but I don't know which is which):

Store #Store Name AddressShopping CenterCityStZip CodeCountyStore Info/History
DothanAL36301HoustonOpened 1980. Sold to Bruno's in 1985 with the rest of the Alabama stores. Bruno's closed in the late 2000's and became Southern Family Market, which has also closed. Currently vacant.
43XXALBERTSONS2001 McFarland BoulevardTuscaloosaAL35404TuscaloosaOpened Summer 1980 to coincide with the opening of the adjacent University Mall. Sold to Bruno's in 1985 with the rest of the Alabama stores. The Bruno's was rebranded as Belle Foods in 2012, and closed late 2013 in Belle Foods' bankruptcy.
43XXALBERTSONS1400 E. Hallandale Beach BoulevardHALLANDALE PLACEHallandale BeachFL33009BrowardOpened 1979. Closed Summer 1990. Publix moved into the site on April 27, 1992 as the only supermarket in the area, moving from an older store in the neighboring shopping center, Hallandale Shopping Center.

     The Hallandale Beach store bugs me the most, as even with all of Broward County's good record keeping dating back to the 70's, there isn't a single reference to the store number anywhere on any official document in reference to the store. The two Alabama stores' numbers remain a mystery since they closed so long ago, and Alabama counties aren't required to provide free online access to records like Florida counties are. If you can provide any assistance, feel free to leave a comment on the blog somewhere or send an e-mail to the address found under the Contact The Albertsons Florida Blog tab located at the top of the page. Thanks for your help!

Until the next time,

    1. I think AFB wants the real numbers, not guessing, as anyone can do that.

    2. I was hoping someone out there with old Albertsons records or a former employee might stumble upon this at some point and fill in the gaps, as I've been able to come up with nothing so far. Guessing doesn't really work for what I'm looking for.

    4339 Dothan, AL
    4342 Hallandale, FL

    1. If you don't mind me asking for quality control purposes, did you get this information from a documented source or was this just a guess?

  3. Also, there were a total of 7 stores in AL that were sold to Bruno's in about 1985. The AL stores were operated by the FL Division from Orlando. The other 5 AL stores were:
    4348 and 4352 in Huntsville, AL
    4336 and 4350 in Montgomery, AL
    4317 in Mobile, AL
