Divestitures clear 'key hurdle' in Albertsons-Safeway deal

Albertsons and Safeway said Friday they will divest 168 stores across eight states as a step toward obtaining Federal Trade Commission clearance for their merger, which they said is scheduled to close in January.

Of the total, 111 of the divested stores, or 66%, are Albertsons locations and 57, or 34%, are Safeway locations, including stores with the Safeway, Vons and Tom Thumb banners.
