business news in context, analysis with attitude

MNB reported yesterday that Associated Wholesale Grocers will acquire four Dillon stores, in Kansas and Missouri, from Kroger. The deal is expectedly to close next month. At the same time, there are published reports that Dillon may acquire five Homeland stores owned by AWG in Wichita, Kansas.

However, I misspoke. Three of the five stores being acquired are in Wichita, Kansas, and the other two are Price Chopper units in Topeka.
