An auction for Haggen’s core Pacific Northwest stores has been pushed back to February 11.

A document filed in bankruptcy court in Delaware said that the auction, which had previously been scheduled for Friday, will take place the following Thursday instead at the New York City offices of Stroock & Stroock & Lavan, a law firm.

When it shed most of the stores it had acquired from Albertsons and Safeway earlier this year, Haggen said it would retreat to a profitable core of Pacific Northwest locations.

But an agreement with the company’s lenders requires it to explore any opportunities to raise cash by selling those core stores as well.
