National media are widely reporting that Albertsons is suing Haggen, accusing the grocer of fraud in failing to pay more than $36 million as part of the sale of 146 grocery stores. One of those stores is in Laguna Beach.
When Haggen came to Laguna, it promised “lower prices and a superior shopping experience,” neither of which has come to fruition. After four months in Laguna Beach, despite disavowal from Haggen, prices for the same products remain consistently higher than those at Ralph’s. Perhaps Laguna residents should consider a filing a lawsuit of their own.
