A Mugging At Albertsons -- Oct 5, 2003


Lawrence R. Johnston et,al



250 Parkway Blvd

Boise, Idaho 83278

Dear Mr. Lawrence

I live in Oakland, California and want to bring the

Albertsons Store at 247 E. 18th St, Oakland, to your

attention. It's a total nightmare!

It has become a complete pig sty during the past year

with dirty sticky floors, stale products, and odors.

Many products on the shelves have expired dated labels

with some products having expired months ago.

The meat department is the worst with meats not fit to

feed a dog because of low-quality cuts or being

discolored from freezer burns. Some appear to have

been thawed out and re-frozen, especially the steaks.

My friends call it ghetto food at this store and we

generally feel mugged every time we go there by high

prices and low-quality.

Often when time permits we go to a better part of

Oakland where white people shop and the quality is

markedly better, fresher, with clean floors.

It is time for an investigation at this store to clean

up the brazen outrageous discriminating policies being

promoted by Albertsons staff at this store!

Worse yet is that Security at this store acts like a

bunch of thugs!

People shopping there get mugged by security!

Around 8:30 pm Friday Oct 3, 2003 I watched a woman

leave the store with a cart full of food when she

suddenly was jumped by 2 thugs. As I was about to call

the police, someone told me that was security.

I did not hear any alarms go off as she walked out the

door, and they did not identify themselves as security

as they jumped her!

They were dressed like punks and not in uniform!

As they dragged her back into the store after nearly

breaking her arms and handcuffing her I heard one of

them scream at her that she stole a loaf of bread!

All of us watching this were shocked by what happened

to her! Are we to be next?

This store scares me and I hope that an investigation

will happen and that city code inspectors check out

the products at this location.



Oaktown CA.

Dear Mr. Cooley,


Thank you for your email regarding recent visits to our store on E. 18th Street in Oakland.  I sincerely apologize for any inconveniences you encountered while visiting our store.


Larry Johnston forwarded your letter to me, Michelle Lawrence.  I am the Area Vice President, and oversee the store you have inquired about.  While it is disturbing to read the concerns you stated, I am, unfortunately, aware of the store conditions. The District Manager, Charles Lightfoot, has personally visited this store to address your concerns, including security issues, as well as sanitation concerns.  I am proud to inform you that we are closing this store at the end of this month to rebuild a new, up-to-date store for our customers.  I am confident that you will be pleased with our new store once it is completed.


Again, thank you for writing and I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience you experienced while shopping at our store.  Your patronage is very important to us, and we appreciate any opportunity to better serve you.




Michelle Lawrence

South Bay Area Vice President
