TOP Food and Drug Closing in Yakima

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA - The Haggen grocery chain is closing three more stores in Washington.

The company, stationed out of Bellingham announced Wednesday that it is closing its TOP Food & Drug stores in Kent, Auburn and Yakima.  

Haggen says nearly 150 employees will be affected as the stores close within three months, but owners say they are working with unions to try to place the workers at other stores.  

Earlier this year Haggen announced plans to close TOP stores in Tacoma, Lacey, Federal Way, Bellevue and Shoreline.

The company says the closures are part of a long-term plan to improve competitiveness.  

Haggen currently operates more than 20 stores in Washington and Oregon under the Haggen Northwest Fresh and TOP Food & Drug names.
