While the chain of Fred Meyer stores includes 128 locations, the company closed its one and only California store in Chico 11 years ago. But now this subsidiary of The Kroger Corporation is back, looking to expand into California. Some Ralphs and Albertsons stores have pulled out in recent years. The Fred Meyers stores, known to fans in Oregon as Freddy’s, sell general merchandise and a full line of groceries. The company isn’t saying where in northern California is plans to locate, or how many stores.
