Here’s the news release issued by Hagan regarding the closure of the Edmonds TOP Food & Drug store:
BELLINGHAM, Wash. (May 29, 2014) — Haggen, Inc. today announced the closure of the Haggen Food & Pharmacy in Arlington and the TOP Food & Drug store in Edmonds. The closures of these two Washington stores are the culmination of unsuccessful lease renewal negotiations with the property owner. The two stores are slated for closure within the next two months.
Liquidation sales will begin on Wednesday, June 4 at the Arlington location at 20115 74th Ave. NE and on Wednesday, June 11 at the Edmonds location at 21900 Highway 99. Pharmacy operations will cease at 5 pm on Thursday, May 29 in Arlington, but the Edmonds pharmacy will continue to operate until further notice.
The company is committed to placing as many valued employees as possible in other area Haggen stores and will also be working with unions, employment security and local businesses to provide additional resources.
“Haggen greatly appreciates our customers, and we hope that those who patronized these two stores will consider shopping at our other Haggen locations,” said Clement Stevens, co-president and senior vice president of merchandising.
