Albertsons Florida Store List & Info

Here's a list of all the Albertsons stores in Florida and Alabama that I've found, including planned/unbuilt stores. Also included is a short histories of each of the stores. I have it arranged by store number. For more information on Albertsons Florida store numbering, please see the Useful Information tab at the top of the page. To locate a store by city or county, use the search box located below the comments section of this page or use the page search feature built into your computer (which is Ctrl+F for Windows users and Command+F for Mac users). 

To visit a certain store's feature post(s), just click on the store number if there's a link.

UPDATE 4/18/2016 - A Safeway Florida store list and a Bonus Buy Store directory have now been added - Scroll down to the bottom of this page to see them!

UPDATE 11/22/2016 #1 - We are currently experiencing technical difficulties with the store list. I'm currently working on finding a way to fix it. Please pardon the weird formatting for the time being.

UPDATE 11/22/2016 #2 - The store list is looking a little better after spending some time messing with the html code. The format isn't ideal - I liked the old auto fit format much better, but I guess this will work for the time being (especially since I don't understand html code all that well).

4308ALBERTSONS2770 W Bay DrBelleair BluffsFL33770PinellasOriginally planned to open in 1975, but construction was halted in March 1975 after a local drugstore owner tried to block construction of the store by saying the construction of the new Albertsons violated local zoning laws and would decrease business to his store. The man behind this did literally everything he could to keep this store from ever opening by appealing appeals and going all the way to the federal government to stop construction. After two years of bickering, legal battles and appeals, Albertsons was finally allowed to resume construction in May 1977. Then another lawsuit was filed to stop the construction of this store by the owners of the neighboring property later in 1977, saying the new store would attract too many outsiders and increase traffic.

The Publix that currently occupies this building has a store number dating back to when this should have opened as an Albertsons around 1998/1999.

As The Treasury began to close their stores down in the 1980's, many became some of the original Home Depot stores, like this one did. Home Depot moved to a new store next door sometime in the 1990's. After Home Depot closed the building was turned into the Westland Commons shopping center. The Albertsons was built where a part of the original Treasury store was torn down. The Albertsons closed very shortly after, but not mentioned in the article about Albertsons pulling out of the Miami region in November 2001, so it probably closed before then, making it one of the shortest lived Florida Albertsons.

** Proposed but Unbuilt/Unopened Albertsons Florida Stores:


Store #Store Name AddressShopping CenterCityStZip CodeCountyStore Info
43XXALBERTSONSEither NE or SW Corner of 9th Street N. and 94th Avenue N.St. PetersburgFL33702PinellasThis store was planned as one of the original Skaggs-Albertsons stores. Construction was supposed to begin on this store at one of the two undeveloped lots at this intersection in Summer of 1974, according to an old newspaper article. Construction never happened here for reasons unknown. Both possible lots have since been developed with smaller businesses.
43XXALBERTSONSSE Corner of S. Beneva Road and Bahia Vista StreetSarasotaFL34232SarasotaAlbertsons was the highest bidder for this property that once housed offices for the Sarasota County School Board. In order to obtain the property, Albertsons had 150 days to go to the zoning board and get the property changed from government use to commercial use. Local residents in the condominium complex adjacent to the site did not want an large 24 hour supermarket next to them, citing traffic concerns, so they protested to the zoning board. The board then rejected Albertsons plans, so Albertsons forfeited the bid. Albertsons later opened thier first Sarasota store in 1988 in the Landings Shopping Center, developed by the same company who later bought this proposed Albertsons site to build a small neighborhood shopping complex.
44XXALBERTSONSSW Corner of US 98 and Marcum RoadLakelandFL33810PolkThis planned store from 1994 was supposed to act as the so called "replacement" for the recently closed Albertsons on S. Florida Avenue in Lakeland (Store #4322). Plans for this store were being made when the closure of the original Lakeland store was announced. This store was planned to open in 1995, but was never built. When this store never materialized, Albertsons still was rumored to be looking for another Lakeland site, but Albertsons never built a new store in the city.
44XXALBERTSONSNW Corner of Prima Vista Blvd & Airoso BlvdPROPOSED SHOPPING CENTERPort St. LucieFL34983St. LucieAlbertsons offered to buy Sportsman's Park, PSL's oldest park, from the city in 1996 to build a new store and shopping center at the site. As a part of the deal, Alberstons would have given the city land elsewhere in town for a new park. The city took interest in this deal for a while, but fierce local opposition about the plans made PSL city council members ultimately shoot down Albertson's offer. Four years later, Albertsons built store #4466 1.5 miles down the road in St. Lucie West.
44XXALBERTSONSSW Corner of S. Florida Ave. and County Road 540ALakelandFL33813PolkAlbertsons was rumored to be looking at this site in 1999 after plans for the Marcum Road store fell apart, next to a proposed Home Depot. The Home Depot was later built, but Albertsons never built a new store here.
44XXALBERTSONSSE Corner of US Highway 1 and Sample RoadLighthouse PointFL33064BrowardAlbertsons submitted plans for this store and a few outparcels to the city in 1997. Residents in the area did not want the store and were fiercely opposed to it, saying it was against city code to build a store at that site and would impede traffic flow on local roads. Some also felt the site was too small and wouldn't allow for enough parking spaces. The city council and zoning board later rejected Albertsons plans and appeal in late 1997.
44XXALBERTSONSSW Corner of Miami Gardens Drive and NE 18th RoadSHOPS AT SKYLAKE (SKYLAKE MALL)MiamiFL33179Miami-DadeAlbertsons was supposed to be the original supermarket anchor for the redevelopment of the former Skylake Mall. For reasons unknown, Albertsons backed out of these plans and Publix opened a store at this site instead in 1999 (There was a lawsuit of some kind going on between Albertsons and the developer of the site, which probably led to Albertsons backing out on this store). The building Publix currently operates in is actually a modified Albertsons structure.
44XXALBERTSONSSE Corner of State Road 54 and Collier ParkwayWILLOW BEND TOWNE CENTRELutzFL33549PascoAs Publix planned to relocate their store in this shopping center across the street in 2002, Albertsons was approached to open a new store in the former Publix. Albertsons looked into the site but found that Publix had a lease restriction in their contract barring any competing supermarket from taking over thie site after they left. Bed Bath & Beyond was then approached to take over the former Publix after Albertsons backed out, but they also did not accept for reasons unknown. The former Publix eventually became home to a Lifestyle Family Fitness Center in 2009.
44XXALBERTSONSNW Corner of Peachland Boulevard and Veterans BoulevardPort CharlotteFL33954CharlotteAlbertsons released plans to build their first Charlotte County store and gas station here in this newly expanding part of town in October 2000. Not long after, Publix released plans to replace their store across the street from the planned Albertsons with a new, larger store in the empty lot adjacent to thier existing store. Both stores, though, never materialized for reasons unknown. The Albertsons site was cleared around 2010 for outparcels to be built on, but nothing major has happened to the site since.
44XXALBERTSONSSE Corner of Sheridan Street and N. 14th AvenueSHERIDAN PLAZAHollywoodFL33019BrowardAlbertsons first submitted plans for this 45,000 square foot store in 1999. After the plans were made public, the community was outraged and began having protests at this site to stop the construction of this store. Albertsons eliminated the gas station from their plans to try to calm the community, but they kept protesting, citing traffic concerns and negative environmental impacts on the neighboring West Lake Park. The city originally approved the plans for this store, but in January 2000, Albertsons decided to cancel their plans for building this store. The site is currently owned by Broward County as preserve land.
4408ALBERTSONSNE Corner of W. Lumsden Road and Providence Road (1836 W. Lumsden)BrandonFL33511HillsboroughPlanned Jewel-Osco Florida store #4105. One of two lots for planned Jewel-Osco Florida stores sold to Albertsons when they bought their 7 Florida stores from them in 1992. Albertsons pursued plans to build this store later in 1996, but they later fell through for reasons unknown. By the late 1990's, the lot was divided into smaller lots for some restaurants and a CVS.
4409ALBERTSONSSE Corner of Sheldon Road and W. Waters Avenue (8315 Sheldon)Town 'n' CountryFL33615HillsboroughPlanned Jewel-Osco Florida store #4108. One of two lots for planned Jewel-Osco Florida stores sold to Albertsons when they bought their 7 Florida stores from them in 1992. I can't find any documentation saying Albertsons pursued the plans to build this store, but it was assigned the store number 4409. This lot sat vacant until 2004 when the Shops at Sheldon was built. Site currently home of Shops at Sheldon and a few other business complexes.
4453ALBERTSONSNE Corner of Moffett Road (US 98) and Schillinger Road (CR 31)ALBERTSONS PLAZAMobileAL36618MobileAlbertsons had plans to build a store here around 1996/1997, over 10 years after they had pulled out of Alabama by selling all of their Alabama stores to Bruno's. This store was to be built in the very outskirts of the city of Mobile. Albertsons was to build a new store with an attached shopping center on this site, but for reasons unknown, nothing ever came to be here. Albertsons sold off this land in 2002, and it remains vacant to this day.
4457ALBERTSONSSW Corner of Bee Ridge Road and Honore AvenuePROPOSED SHOPPING CENTERSarasotaFL34233SarasotaThe owner of this property, one of the last open lots in Sarasota, wanted to develop it as a major shopping center in late 1998, which the city had been planning for for many years. Albertsons was the frontrunner to be the main grocery anchor in the center. The plans were later scaled back due to traffic concerns. One city comissioner then began to pressure the owner of the land to sell the lot to the county to preserve its natural significance and turn it into a park. The owner finally gave in and sold the land to the county for use as a park, formally scrapping all plans for this Albertsons. This site became Urfer Family Park in 2008.
4480ALBERTSONSNW Corner of S. Douglas Road and Zamora Avenue (1500 S. Douglas)DOUGLAS GRANDCoral GablesFL33134Miami-DadeThis store was supposed to be built right around when Albertsons pulled out of Miami-Dade County in late 2001 on the site of the former Coliseum, an auditorium built in the 1920's when Coral Gables was first founded. That was torn down for a Service Merchandise, which was then torn down for the Albertsons/Douglas Grand. This Albertsons would have been a small store (44,000 sqft, compared to the typical approx. 60,000 sqft. stores) on the ground floor of the Douglas Grand Condominium complex. When Albertsons pulled out of Miami, they sold this property, along with store #4435, to Publix (Construction may have started when Albertsons was still in control, but I'm not completely sure). After aquiring the property, Publix opened in 2003 as the supermarket tenant for the Douglas Grand Condominium complex (The small size is more suitable for Publix anyway). It's a very unique design the way it's integrated into the condo complex.
4481ALBERTSONSNW Corner of Miami Gardens Drive (NW 186 Street) and NW 87 AvenueALBERTSONS (SEDANO'S) PLAZAHialeahFL33018Miami-DadeThis store was supposed to be built right around when Albertsons pulled out of Miami-Dade County in late 2001 on a vacant lot in one of the westernmost urbanized areas of Miami-Dade County, near Interstate 75. After Albertsons pulled out of Miami-Dade County, this site sat vacant until 2007 when a Sedano's and accompanying shopping center were built at the site.
4493ALBERTSONSNW Corner of Caroline Street and Dogwood Drive (6516 Caroline)SIX FLAGS SHOPPING CENTERMiltonFL32570Santa RosaThis store was supposed to open in 2004 as one of the last new Albertsons stores in Florida, and their first store in Santa Rosa County (just northeast of Pensacola). It was to be an unusually small, approx. 40,000 sqft. store occupying a former Piggly Wiggly space with an Albertsons Express gas station built out front. As 2004 crept on, Albertsons began to realize they were losing the supermarket game in Florida and they put the plans for this store on indefinate hold in mid-2004, just to scrap them soon after. The Piggly Wiggly site sat vacant until 2012, when it became a Pic N Sav Food Outlet. The outparcel set aside for the Albertsons Express has since become a Walgreens.

The Gooding's chain reached a peak of near 20 stores in the early 90's scattered throughout Central Florida, however financial troubles and lack of desire by the descendants of the chain's founders to stay in the grocery retail business have shrunk the chain to this one store that somehow manages to survive to this day.

    2. Thanks for the info! The planned Bee Ridge store is now in the table under store #4457. Albertsons really wanted to build that store from what I found online.

  2. Former employee of store 4310 worked their starting as cashier then went to the drug dept. and became a third man. Worked from 81 to 86 then left and came back in 87 for a few months worked as the meat deli manager. They strayed from their original business model and that's when it all fell apart. Worked with a lot of great people and wonder where they all ended up at.
