LUBBOCK (LEDA) – The Lubbock Economic Development Alliance (LEDA) announced Wednesday that locally based retail grocer United Supermarkets will add 190 new jobs here over the next few years.

These jobs, ranging from back office and IT support to warehouse and transportation staff, will result in $7.2 million in annual salaries. In addition, 200,000 sf will be added to United's distribution site, a $33.7 million capital investment.

"The expansion of this local company, and the jobs they are set to create, will have tremendous impact on Lubbock's economy," said John Osborne, CEO of LEDA and Market Lubbock.

The indirect and induced employment impact of this change is estimated to be 311 jobs and new salaries of $11.9 million annually. The expanded facility will have a total impact of $22.6 million per year once fully operational.

United Supermarkets, a subsidiary of Albertsons LLC, has 66 stores across Texas and New Mexico.
