BELLINGHAM, Wash. (AP) - The fate of grocery chain Haggen has been delayed for a few days, as the auction to sell its remaining 33 stores in Washington and Oregon has been pushed back to Feb. 11.

The Bellingham Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1X38gvf ) that court documents filed Tuesday show the auction has been moved from Feb. 5 to Feb. 11. The filing does not give a reason for the change.

The auction will be held in a law office in New York City as part of Chapter 11 bankruptcy filed earlier this year after purchasing nearly 150 stores from Albertsons and Safeway.

The Bellingham-based company failed to convert the stores, many of which have been auctioned.

Whether the name disappears will be up to buyers who could keep the brand, which is well-known in the Pacific Northwest.
