Acme Grocery Chain Sold

The brand has a strong presence in Lower Merion, but its future is uncertain.

Acme Markets, which operates two grocery stores in Roxborough, is among several chains the Supervalu company has sold to investment consortium Cerberus Capital Management, Supervalu announced Thursday.

There was no announcement from Supervalu or Cerberus about how the sale will affect the future of the grocery stores.

Acme has a location in as well as stores in Andorra and Roxborough.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported in July that moves by Supervalu executives seemed to indicate they were looking for buyers for Acme and their other grocery "banners".

The Acme on Germantown Avenue will probably be sold to Brown's ShopRite, while Andorra will become Trader Joe's and the one near RoxHosp will be absorbed by Giant. The SuperFresh at IvyRidge also will close soon, according to trade reports.

Lancaster Brand Beef is NOW tough as shoeleather, Please shop Brown's ShopRite for quality product, priced honestly, union workers, and owned by local American family, whom are very good friends with President Obama and Wendel YoungV
