GIANT Food Stores has acquired five Shop ’n Save locations from SuperValu, the subsidiary of UNFI. The stores will undergo a one-week conversion, opening again as MARTIN’S Food Markets on April 5, 2019.

According to a company press release, the following stores are part of the sale:

Following a purchase agreement announced by GIANT in November 2018, the Federal Trade Commission officially approved the acquisition February 25, 2019.

Nicholas Bertram, President, GIANT Food Stores“Our team is really excited to bring MARTIN’S Food Markets to these vibrant communities,” said Nicholas Bertram, President, GIANT Food Stores. “We put our customers at the heart of everything we do, and with the addition of these locations, our new neighbors can count on farm fresh produce and quality products their families will love.”

The press release noted that the stores will close temporarily on March 27, 2019, at 6 pm, for extensive remodels to convert the existing locations into MARTIN’S Food Markets. Upon the reopening on April 5, 2019, at 8 am, shoppers will be treated to low prices on an expanded variety and assortment of local products, including a farm fresh produce department featuring more than 300 items.

The acquisition is in line with a series of strategic investments that the company has made recently to its store fleet and family of brands in Pennsylvania. The first GIANT Heirloom Market opened this year in Philadelphia, with plans for three more locations to open in 2019. The company’s new GIANT DIRECT e-commerce hub was opened this year in the city of Lancaster, and more new stores are set to open in the East Stroudsburg and Walnutport communities later this year.
