business news in context, analysis with attitude

Ahold-owned Stop & Shop said yesterday that it is acquiring leases for two Grand Union Family Markets - one in Provincetown, Massachusetts, and the other in Seekonk, Massachusetts – that have been operated by C&S Wholesale Grocers.

The company said that “the closing of both transactions will occur in early December followed by a brief shut down of the stores to convert them to Stop & Shop. Both stores will re-open in time to serve customers through the holidays.”
