Tuesday, April 16th, 2024

Wisconsin is the latest market in which SpartanNash will be extending its footprint. The retailer is closing on its acquisition of Metcalfe’s Market, a chain consisting of three stores in Wisconsin. All employees will have the opportunity to continue their employment, while the storefront, branding, and core shopper experience will remain the same.

Tony Sarsam, Chief Executive Officer, SpartanNash“Metcalfe’s Market has been a successful family-owned and operated business for four generations, and we are honored that the Metcalfe family is entrusting SpartanNash to build upon their legacy and bring new offerings to its team members and grocery shoppers,” said SpartanNash CEO Tony Sarsam. “As a People First company, we welcome Tim, Kevin, and the entire Metcalfe’s Market team into the SpartanNash family, and we look forward to earning the loyalty of our newest store guests. As a food solutions company, we provide the ingredients for family meals and traditions—just like Metcalfe’s Market has for more than 100 years.”

Metcalfe’s Market is a community staple, specializing in premium quality foods, sustainability practices, and an extensive focus on local products featuring Metcalfe’s Food Miles program. Former Owners Tim and Kevin Metcalfe will join the SpartanNash family of associates.
