Company Background

AB Acquisition operates Albertsons stores under Albertson's LLC and ACME Markets, Jewel-Osco, and Shaw's and Star Markets under New Albertson's, Inc. Shaw's Supermarkets was one of five grocery chains sold by former parent SUPERVALU in March 2013 for an aggregate price of $3.3 billion to Cerberus Capital Management, a private equity firm specializing in distressed securities and assets. The sale followed the elimination of some 700 store-level positions at Shaw's and Star Market stores in late 2012. SUPERVALU had acquired Shaw's in 2006.
