Less than a year after opening in Mission Viejo, Haggen, a grocery chain out of Washington, is closing its Mission Viejo store on Los Alisos along with 3 other Orange County locations in Tustin and Irvine. The chain has struggled to attract customers.
“Haggen’s goal going forward is to ensure a stable, healthy company that will benefit our customers, associates, vendors, creditors, stakeholders as well as the communities we serve,” Haggen CEO Pacific Southwest, Bill Shaner said in a written release. “By making the tough choice to close and sell some stores, we will be able to invest in stores that have the potential to thrive under the Haggen banner.”
It looks like the Haggen’s on Muirlands at La Paz has survived – so far.
