Baseline bidder deadline passes for Haggen auction

The deadline for a baseline bidder in the upcoming auction of Haggen’s remaining stores – including all five in Whatcom County – has passed with no group apparently being named. The Bellingham-based grocer is scheduled to auction off its 33 core stores on Friday, Feb. 5. A deadline of Jan. 21 was set in order to name a stalking horse bidder in a similar format to the auction of the non-core stores in November .
