Albertsons Distribution Center has joined the Greater Irvine Chamber as a gold-level Leaders Circle partner.

Orange County-based Albertsons, Vons, and Pavilions, is a division of Albertsons Companies. Locally great and nationally strong, Albertsons Companies is one of the largest food and drug retailers in the United States. 

Albertsons Companies has served Southern California since 1906, when the first Vons opened at 7th and Figueroa in Los Angeles. That store catered to the needs of local families and pioneered the modern-day grocery store. Today, the stores maintain that commitment to best serve customers and benefit the communities they serve. A union-represented employer with nearly 68,000 associates across the state, Albertsons Companies is the largest buyer of California produce in the state, with deep roots in the community. Long before "local" was cool, we developed relationships with local growers going back decades and offered thousands of local items throughout our stores. Albertsons Companies continues to look for innovative ways to meet customer needs, including providing curbside pickup service. Using today's eCommerce technology, Albertsons Companies maintains its focus to deliver high-quality, fresh products in a faster and more efficient way.  

Albertsons Companies not only have one of the state's largest trucking fleets, but it also have the 'cleanest.' In May of 2021, Albertsons achieved the nation's first commercial Zero-Emission, All-Electric Refrigerated Grocery Delivery. Two Electric Trucks operate out of its Irvine Distribution Center to deliver fresh food to our stores throughout the Southern California region.

Leaders Circle members of the Greater Irvine Chamber are among the most influential companies and organizations in Irvine and Orange County. They take a proactive role in supporting the region’s business community at the highest level.
