Albertsons Companies Suspends Self-Serve Operations,
Revises Deli Procedures


As we continue to navigate through this public health crisis together, the health and well-being of our associates and our customers remains our top priority. To that end, we are making changes to our deli service procedures to make sure that we are doing everything we can to keep our associates and the customers we serve safe.

  • Pausing Self-Service: As an added precaution, we have paused self-service operations like soup bars, wing bars, salad bars, and olivebars.
  • Enhanced Cleaning Procedures: We have associates dedicated to cleaning all prep and cooking areas. As always, we regularly remind our associates to follow all CDC guidelines for frequent hand washing, hand sanitizer use, and surface cleaning.
  • Running Clean Stores: Beyond our deli counters, we’ve taken enhanced measures to clean and disinfect all departments, restrooms and other high-touch points of the store throughout the day, as well as a deep cleanse at the end of each business day. Cart wipes and hand sanitizer stations continue to be available at key locations within the store. 
  • Practicing Social Distancing: We have asked all of our associates to maintain a distance of six feet from other employees in all prep and cooking areas. Our associates will also practice the same social distancing procedures with our customers.

We appreciate our customers’ patience and understanding and thank you for counting on the Albertsons Companies stores to meet your grocery and pharmacy needs.
