Milton shoppers get to mark the return of their Albertsons grocery store this week.
The store, 2800 Milton Way, will start its grand opening celebration at 8 a.m. Wednesday with live music, cake, prizes and local dignitaries in attendance.
The store employs 109, including 45 former Albertsons employees and the store’s former pharmacy staff, according to a company news release.
The store used to be in the Albertsons chain, then was converted to a Haggen store in May 2015 during Haggen’s failed expansion bid. Later that year, most of the stores were repurchased by Albertsons/Safeway after Haggen entered bankruptcy proceedings.
