The D-FW communities hit hardest as Albertsons-Kroger plan to sell 26 area stores

The more than two dozen stores all come from Albertsons portfolio, including Tom Thumb and Market Street.

Kroger has identified the list of stores in Dallas-Fort Worth it plans to sell if it’s allowed to complete its pending acquisition of Albertsons.

The 26 stores on the divestiture list are all Albertsons brands, which in the Dallas-Fort Worth market includes Tom Thumb and Market Street, a move that the companies hope will satisfy anti-trust concerns of the Federal Trade Commission.

None of the stores sold will be Kroger locations. Only one Dallas store is on the list. A Tom Thumb at 6333 E. Mockingbird Lane that sits a little more than a mile from a Kroger will sell to New Hamp.-based grocery supplier C&S, which owns the Piggly Wiggly chain. But Kroger isn’t giving up more Tom Thumb storefronts in Dallas — Tom Thumb has some of the best locations in the city.

Or with:

Two Albertsons and two Tom Thumbs are on the divestiture list in Arlington, which already has nine Kroger storefronts.

Frisco will also see two Market Street locations and two Tom Thumb locations sold. There are four Kroger locations in Frisco.


The Tom Thumb store on the divestiture list in Richardson sits on W. Campbell Road and is not far from a Kroger on Preston Road and another Tom Thumb on West Arapaho Road.

The companies are selling off two Rockwall Tom Thumb locations, where Kroger already has two storefronts. And a Market Street that C&S will obtain in Mansfield sits just across the street from a Kroger.

The stores impacted sit primarily in North Dallas. Kroger and Albertsons own few storefronts south of downtown Dallas. The boutique supermarket concept Market Street was hit hard as six of the nine in the market will be sold.
