retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Sources tell MNB that Judy Spires, who resigned as president of Supervalu-owned Acme Supermarkets two weeks ago, has agreed to take the top job at New Jersey’s Kings Super Markets.

While details are sketchy at this time, we’re told that Bruce Weitz, who has been president/CEO at Kings since July 2006, has resigned from the company.

Spires, who began her supermarket career as a teenaged bagger at Acme, became CEO of that chain in February 2006 after having served as president of Albertsons’ Dallas-Forth Worth division before it was acquired by Supervalu.
