Albertsons was founded in 1939 by Joe Albertson, a former Safeway district manager, when he partnered with L.S. Skaggs and opened his first Albertsons store in Boise, Idaho with his life savings of $5,000 and $7,500 he borrowed from his wife's Aunt Bertie. Since its inception, the company has passed through many mergers and acquisitions. Today, it becomes the second-largest supermarket chain in North America, operating as a banner of Albertsons Companies. It currently operates about 2,252 stores (Jun. 2020) across the country, in Texas, Colorado, California, Louisiana, and Washington, with up to 270,000 employees (Feb. 2020). It opened Albertson Market Street in Meridian, Idaho, in 2019, which became its largest store at 110,000 square feet, featuring a wide array of departments exclusive to the store. The company is currently headquartered in Boise, Idaho, US.
