business news in context, analysis with attitude

Reuters reports that Target Corp. has signed a deal with Supervalu to supply groceries to 31 of its supercenters, replacing Fleming.

Fleming's core-Mark division will continue supplying candy to the 31 SuperTarget outlets in Texas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma, however.

The announcement comes as Fleming has decided to close three divisions, in Alabama, Louisiana and Wisconsin, and consider the sale of any and all parts of the company.

With the addition of these stores, Supervalu now reportedly supplies the entire SuperTarget network of 102 store locations.

And we watch as another nail in Fleming's coffin is put in place.

Expect a lot more such nails to be hammered into place over the next few weeks.
