  11. Im so excited one of the best stores I’ve ever shopped at :-)

  12. Debbi Foley Debbi Foley says:

    Ours opened in Palmdale a couple of weeks ago…. EXPENSIVE!

  13. My Albertsons in Palmdale was just switched to this. Anybody know anything about the prices?

    Vons on Bouquet is converting BEFORE McBean!

  15. Wow! Never heard of them.

  16. Haggens is horribly expensive! Went to the one on 50th West/N by me…..no more! They are grossly overpriced on EVERYTHING.

  17. It is a family owned chain of stores out of the NW, great reputation. A little more of a higher end grocery store. I look forward to them opening!

  18. Cathy Lahey Cathy Lahey says:

    Doesn’t look like a Food Maxx…..gonna be pricey folks…

  19. Jeran Isam Jeran Isam says:

    I’m so freaking pissed off! Pavilions is going to RUIN our communities perception of Haggen!

  20. Sad because the Vons manager was touting it to be a combo of Trader Joes and Whole Foods but with much better prices. Sad to hear they’re so expensive!

  21. Well let’s hope for the best. We really need like the employees at the Vons on Bouquet.

  22. Joe Aguilar Joe Aguilar says:

    Opening Across the street from Trader Joe’s on Bouquet, should be interesting….

  23. Kim Forbes Kim Forbes says:

  25. Bouquet Vons will be Haggen by April 20th

  26. Gayle Smith Gayle Smith says:

    I like them. Have been to Haggen when OR.

  27. Rose Brown Rose Brown says:

    A cashier told me Haggens is a combo of whole foods and Bristol farms. She said pricing was to stay the same but also said we’ll see??? I would expect higher prices would be my guess.

    • Actually a cross between Whole Foods and Safeway. Fresher items, gluten free, and lots of organic, scratch bakery and they do tons with the community, but you can still get your coke, snickers and toilet paper

  28. J tell them the Bouqet store has always been and always will stay stronger no matter who’s name but put it your way agents old pavilions store ok girl luv u

  29. All the fault lies with albertsons after they acquired so cal’s vons/pavilions from the Safeway chain last year. In order to prevent a monopoly they had to sell off a bunch of locations to the new Haggen chain.

  30. Who the heck needs an entryway this big–it’ll be great to see it down come one of our earthquakes.

  31. We just got one 2 weeks ago! One day it was albertsons then without any notice 3 days later it was this new store!
