Supermarkets Supervalu and Roundy’s Supermarkets have announced that they plan to transition approximately 50 independent retailer locations currently served by Roundy’s from its Stevens Point and Oconomowoc distribution centres in Wisconsin to Supervalu’s Green Bay and Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin distribution centres.
The transition will involve a range of grocery retail banners across Wisconsin, but excludes independently owned and operated Pick ‘n Save retailers, which will continue to be served by Roundy’s. The transition is expected to begin early next month, and will be completed by the end of August. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Robert Mariano, chairman and CEO of Roundy’s, said, “This transition is consistent with our strategy to concentrate our resources on growing our own retail stores and independently owned and operated Pick ‘n Save retailers.”
“Supervalu is pleased to welcome this group of highly regarded retailers to our Midwest Region, and we look forward to establishing new partnerships with these experienced business owners,” said Jeff Noddle, Supervalu chairman and CEO. “We are eager to introduce to them the wide range of supply chain services and leading-edge technology solutions in which Supervalu continues to invest.”
