Owasso Albertson’s Building to Be Split

Almost a year after Albertson’s closed or sold all of its stores in Oklahoma, including the former Owasso location at 86th St. and 129th East Ave., a yet to be named grocery store will soon occupy about 70 percent of the store.
Chelsea Harkins, Owasso’s economic development director, said an announcement would be made in the next few weeks about a grocery store that will occupy about 70 percent of the old Albertson’s building at 86th St. and 129th East Ave.
Edmond-based Tapp Development will help re-develop the building. Harkins said the store will be a “split pad” with two tenants occupying the building.
“The grocery store will go into the 70 percent side,” Harkins said. “It’s a concrete deal that the grocery store is going in there. We’re not sure what is going into the 30 side of the building.
Harkins said each owner will own the property from the actual store to 86th St. She added that whoever owns the 30 percent side will also own the old Albertson’s gas station.
Both owners of the old Albertson’s building would be “big players,” said City Manager Rodney Ray.
Boise, Idaho-based Albertson’s closed or sold all of its Oklahoma stores last July.
