US food distributor and retailer Supervalu is to close an Ohio warehouse that it is buying from C&S Wholesale Grocers, leading to the loss of 850 jobs.


The wholesale distribution facility was among the operations recently acquired by Vermont-based C&S Wholesale from bankrupt grocery retailer and distributor Fleming, reported The Associated Press.


This week C&S sold its Midwest Fleming operations to Supervalu, while Supervalu sold its New England operations to C&S.
