Vons is adding more than 50 stores to the portfolio of its stores in the U.S. and Canada, the company announced on Thursday.
The company said the moves will bolster its ability to serve a wider array of customers and drive profits.
The move comes as the company is facing scrutiny over its high prices and low quality standards, including its handling of food that is unfit for human consumption.
Vons has been a fixture in the grocery business since its inception in 2000.
The chain has grown from being a small chain to a global company with more than 5,000 stores in 35 countries.
It has more than $1.4 billion in annual revenue and nearly 30,000 employees.
The Wall Street Journal first reported the news.
Voons said it will add five new stores in Canada and four in the United States.
It will also open more than 1,000 new jobs at its U.K. operations, the Wall Street Review reported.
Vonney, which operates in the Netherlands, Australia and New Zealand, has struggled to grow in recent years.
The stock closed at $7.96.
