Several Shop ’n Save grocery stores in the region are expected to change hands later this summer.
Jim and Jeff Sorbara, who own six Shop ’n Save stores, have decided to sell four locations, according to a spokesman for Minnesota-based grocery distributor SuperValu, which supplies both Shop ’n Save and Foodland stores.
The Duritza family, which already owns five Shop ’n Save grocery stores, plans to acquire locations in Bethel Park and Wilkins, according to a statement from Jeff Swanson, director of corporate communications for SuperValu. Those stores will continue to operate under the Shop ’n Save banner.
O’Hara grocer Giant Eagle has a deal to buy stores in Kennedy and South Fayette from the Sorbaras, according to the SuperValu announcement.
The Sorbaras, meanwhile, will continue to operate Shop ’n Save stores in Cranberry and Heidelberg.
The move was described as a strategic business decision made in the interests of the family.
The Duritza family is offering jobs in the two stores it is acquiring to current employees who want to stay and meet certain requirements.
