The dimly lit ballroom of the Boise Centre erupted into applause as local Albertsons executive Susan Morris welcomed local business leaders with a declaration that Albertsons once again calls Boise home.
The company was a "diamond sponsor" of the Boise Metro Chamber of Commerce gala in October, its logo and name decorating the venue. Morris got a more than a warm welcome as she told the audience how Albertsons plans to invest in the local community after a half-dozen years of separation from its roots.
Albertsons is now the biggest company based in Idaho, measured by revenue and by employment, dwarfing iconic Gem State companies like Micron Technology Inc. and J.R. Simplot Co.
In the full story, you'll read about the company's evolution, what reunification means for Idaho, what the future may hold and the chain's new pricing strategy.
