This is a very large retail outlet whose single purpose in life is to pry every last dime out of each customer visit. The stores are always clean and orderly, but considerably over-priced. Marketing and local ads will use all sorts of gimmicks to convince customers otherwise, but the bottom line is profitability at this store.

In addition, personal experience shows that Albertson's consistently takes first place in "pricing errors," i.e. overcharging at the register. Study your receipts before leaving the store. At one point several years ago I was overcharged on the average of EVERY THIRD VISIT! This situation has improved quite a bit since then, but I can't help wondering if some amount of check-out over-charging is company policy.

Meat section is usually above average in selection, cuts, and taste, though the chain has been caught several times re-dating packages to illegally extend the "use by" dates, but no local stores have been known to engage in this practice.
