Auction of Haggena s core stores moved to Feb. 11

The auction of the Bellingham-based grocer’s 33 core stores has been rescheduled for 6 a.m. Pacific time Thursday, Feb. 11 and will be held in a law office in New York City, according to a court document filed on Tuesday, Feb. 2. The auction will take place at the offices of Stroock & Stroock & Levan . The auction was originally scheduled for Friday, Feb. 5. The two-page court document did not offer an explanation as to why the auction date was changed, but previous filings noted that this auction is expected to draw plenty of interest from many bidders because as a group, these stores are profitable and in good locations.
