SuperValu Inc and Roundy’s Supermarkets Inc plan to transition about 50 independent retailer locations served by Roundy’s from its Stevens Point and Oconomowoc distribution centers in Wisconsin to SuperValu's Green Bay and Pleasant Prairie WI distribution centers.
The transition will involve a range of grocery retail banners across Wisconsin. However, it excludes independently owned and operated Pick ‘n Save retailers, which will continue to be served by Roundy’s. The transition is expected to be completed by the end of August 2005. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
With 21,000 employees, Roundy’s operates 132 retail grocery stores under the Pick ‘n Save, Copps, and Rainbow Foods banners in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Illinois. SuperValu has more than 57,000 employees and 1,555 retail grocery locations.
