retail news in context, analysis with attitude

• The Portland Press Herald reports that Hannaford Supermarkets is acquiring two Maine stores from a wholesale customer, Bud’s Shop ‘n Save.

The Bud's stores have been customers of Hannaford's wholesale division for more than six decades. When the deal is completed later this year, Bud's owner Dean Homstead will still own and operate one store under the banner.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
