Beginning May 21st, Raley’s will begin to assume operations of five Scolari’s Food & Drug locations and one Sak ‘N Save store, on a staggered transition schedule.

The Scolari's on South McCarran Blvd. officially closed down Thursday night as teams began the transition. KTVN got an exclusive sneak peek behind the scenes. Click the video above to watch. 

Each store will have their own unique transition timeline, but all six locations will be fully converted to Raley’s ownership by June 10. 

Raley's says each of the purchased stores will close for two days, where the stores will go through a transition and reopen as Raley’s. This includes the Sak ‘N Save that will keep its name but reopen under Raley’s leadership.

Scolari’s Food & Drug employees were encouraged to apply for employment as Raley’s team members, and of those who applied, 95% have been hired. In addition, four of the stores will be managed by the same leadership. There are still open positions available, www.raleys.com/careers
