Report: Albertsons expected to be reunited under one operator on Thursday

BOISE, Idaho — Supervalu’s sale of Albertsons stores to Cerberus Capital Management will reportedly close Thursday at midnight, according to a published report by StateImpact Idaho.

In January, Supervalu announced a definitive agreement under which it will sell 877 stores across the Albertsons, Acme, Jewel-Osco, Shaw’s and Star Market banners and related Osco and Sav-on in-store pharmacies to AB Acquisition, an affiliate of Cerberus Capital Management, in a transaction valued at $3.3 billion. The move reunites all Albertsons stores under one operator.

According to the StateImpact Idaho report, a Supervalu spokesman disputed that the Albertsons deal will be finalized by midnight on Thursday and said the sale is expected to be complete “some time this week.”
