In a news report from Reuters, we’re learning that SuperValu (the parent company of Albertsons) will be closing most of the “underperforming or non-strategic stores” before Dec. 1, the end of its fiscal third quarter.
“The closures will include 27 Albertsons supermarkets in Southern California and the Intermountain West region, 22 Save-A-Lot discount food stores, four Acme supermarkets and one Jewel-Osco grocery stores
Supervalu, the third-largest U.S. supermarket operator, said eight other stores would be closed, but it declined to give details, citing ongoing contractual discussions. Supervalu expects those stores to be closed by Feb. 23, when its fiscal year ends.”
