This closure disproportionately affected working people and people of color who walked to the store or took the bus.  The Albertsons lease with Park Manor shopping center contained a "non-compete clause" that  prohibits other grocers from locating in that shopping center until 2042.

To: Albertsons
From: [Your Name]

We call on Albertsons to abandon the “non-compete clause” and permit other grocers to move into the Park Manor shopping center so that Bellingham's Birchwood residents again have access to a wide selection of affordable and healthy foods.
