CITY OF COMMERCE, Calif. – The senior management of 99¢ Only Stores has been replaced, and Richard Anicetti, former president and chief executive officer of Food Lion LLC, has been named interim CEO.
Three founding executives, CEO Eric Schiffer; Jeff Gold, president and chief operating officer; and Howard Gold, executive vice president, have all left the company.
