Making Changes: United Supermarkets arrive in the Permian Basin

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(MIDLAND, Texas, and ODESSA, Texas) — On July 1, the United Family will begin using the Albertsons Market banner exclusively in New Mexico, which means United Supermarkets are coming to Midland and Odessa.

This move is part of the United Family’s effort to better reflect its West Texas roots and create the best shopping experience for its guests in the Permian Basin. People will see this reflected in the slogan, “We are West Texas and West Texas is United.”

With this name change, guests can expect the same friendly service, high-quality products and West Texas values that United Supermarkets has been known for over its 104-year history.

United Supermarkets takes pride in tailoring each of its locations to match the community around it. So, not only can guests expect to see their favorite local products, but they will also see products from around the state of Texas.

Just as Albertsons Market A-Team members volunteered for many non-profit organizations, United Supermarkets will continue serving alongside the community through their U Crew volunteers. Requests for monetary donations from United Supermarkets to non-profit organizations will continue to be received through the donations portal.

These changes will take place at all four Albertsons Market locations in the area. The Midland locations include the stores at 1002 Andrews Highway and 3317 N. Midland Drive. The Odessa locations include the stores at 1350 E. 8th St. and 2751 N. County Road W.

The Market Street locations in Midland and Odessa, also part of the United Family, will continue to serve guests in the Permian Basin as normal.
