The Springfield State Journal Register reports that Niemann Foods plans to buy two Jewel-Osco stores in Springfield, Illinois, from Cerberus Management Group, which itself just bought the stores as part of its acquisition of part of the Albertsons chain of supermarkets and drug stores. Terms of the proposed deal have not been disclosed.

Niemann currently owns and operates more than 60 stores – including Cub and County Market formats – in Illinois, Missouri and Iowa.
