10 Harris Teeter Stores in DMV Area Will Be Sold As Part of Kroger/Albertsons Merger
No Safeway or Kroger Stores Represented by UFCW Local 400 Sold So Far
Today, Kroger and Albertsons announced plans to sell at least 413 stores across the country to C&S Wholesale Grocers as part of the mega-merger of the two companies. An additional 237 stores may also be sold to C&S as part of the deal, depending on the results of the regulatory review of the merger with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
The stores will not change hands unless and until the FTC approves the overall Kroger/Albertsons merger, which the companies claim could happen in early 2024. However, many industry analysts are skeptical and believe regulators will move to block the merger.
As of now, ten Harris Teeter stores in the DMV area will be sold to C&S if and when the merger is completed. The exact stores have not been identified at this time. No Safeway or Kroger stores in the Mid-Atlantic have been identified for sale so far, although that may change. There are no further details on store divestments available at this time.
