Tom Thumb Closes One Store; Reopens Another in Grapevine
A Tom Thumb grocery store in Grapevine, Texas is closing permanently this month. A spokesperson from parent company Albertsons says the company will continue to invest in the North Texas market. After the closure, North Texas will have a total of 63 Tom Thumb stores and 37 Albertsons. The store at 4000 William D. Tate Avenue in Grapevine will close by February 24th. There are 70 employees who will be offered positions at other locations.
According to an Albertsons spokesperson, the company considered the timing of the lease renewal and the proximity of neighboring sister stores. An Albertsons store located less than a mile away at 4000 Glade Road will soon be rebranded as a Tom Thumb. It is currently undergoing a significant remodel and is expected to open mid-February. Albertsons says it remains committed to Dallas Fort Worth and will continue to invest in remodels and new store openings. The spokesperson confirmed plans for the opening of three new Tom Thumb stores this year, with an additional three in development for 2025 and 2026.
In 2023, the company opened a new Albertsons in Irving and has plans to open another in Southern Oklahoma in 2024.
