Supervalu sells Bristol Farms unit
November 15th, 2010
MINNEAPOLIS – Supervalu Inc. has sold its 14-store Bristol Farms division to the chain’s management and the investment firm Endeavour Capital.
Under the terms of the deal the stores will continue to operate under the Bristol Farms name.
"Supervalu continuously evaluates its operations to identify opportunities to strengthen its overall business and, when necessary, makes decisions that involve the sale of some locations," senior vice president of specialty retail Brian Huff says. "This move will ultimately allow us to operate more efficiently and effectively, and focus on improving the shopping experience throughout its entire network of owned and supplied stores."
Along those lines, Supervalu recently debuted “living healthy with my diabetes,” a comprehensive health and wellness program aimed at customers with diabetes.
Under the program, diabetes patients will have access to educational materials, health screening tests, group and individual diabetes education and training programs, medication management consultations, nutrition information, dietary tools, diabetes products and other services.
The program has also included special events this month to mark American Diabetes Month.
