BELLINGHAM, Wash. (AP) — Grocery chain Haggen has added six more stores in the Northwest to its list of those it would like to sell.

Three stores in Washington south of Seattle and three stores in Oregon have been tacked on to the 127 it wants to shed as part of a bankruptcy plan.

It would leave the Bellingham-based chain with just 31 stores after ridding itself of most of the stores it bought from Albertsons and Safeway in December.

Haggen struggled to convert many of the stores to their brand and filed for bankruptcy protection in September.

The grocer has said they’ve found buyers for 36 stores in California and Nevada. The company has also put into place a bid and auction process for some of the stores.
