Albertsons/Safeway in Colorado: past 5 years, 40 store closures

I know they've closed quite a few stores in the past 5 years in Colorado but is this accurate? I'm having a tough time getting the total to 40.

This also notes that the chain has closed 160 stores total across all regions in the past 5 years. For 1/4 of those closures to be in a state that had like 1/20 of the chain's total store count is pretty extreme...

I suspect most of those were ex Albertsons or Safeways near existing Albertsons
