Haggen closing 27 stores; local employees rallying for their jobs
SPANAWAY, Wash. -- Haggen is preparing to shut down 27 grocery stores in the western U.S., including the Spanaway location. Local employees planned to rally on Friday in protest of the closure. But there may be some good news for employees, the Seattle Times reports Haggen says it is "cooperating" with a request to let Albertsons hire back some of its former workers.
