Mergers and acquisitions


Coborn's to Buy Hornbacher's From UNFI/Supervalu

The deal preserves Supervalu's distribution volume and all but one of Hornbacher's 8 stores.


SpartanNash to Acquire Midwest Indie Martin's Super Markets

The deal expands the distributor's retail footprint while providing "stewardship" for exiting family owners.

Retailer's first U.S. acquisition will establish a heavy presence on Long Island.

The acquisition will strengthen the Martin’s banner along the I-81 corridor while reuniting former Food Lions with their original corporate parent.

Retail officials stress the importance of strategic partnerships in an investor conference as news of official terms break.

The $2.9 billion deal closes, creating what officials called a "premier" grocery wholesaler. Plus, Supervalu's Anne Dament and Mike Stigers join the executive team.

The retailer will finish rebranding the 10 remaining stores and stand-alone pharmacy by the end of the month.

The retailer will also be testing quick-cook meal kits through its recently acquired brand.

The "exploratory pilot" will test online pickup, private label and whether the two retailers are a match.

The combination will strengthen the grocer's convenience portfolio in Indiana.
