Jewel-Osco president William Emmons is retiring less than a year after taking the helm at the grocery chain, which is now part of New Albertsons, according to a Chicago Tribune report.
Jewel-Osco, which is owned by New Albertsons, has completed 18 remodeled stores, which feature an expanded variety of the fresh produce, meat and seafood.
Jewel-Osco will celebrate on Wednesday the official grand reopening of its Ohio & State location in Chicago.
Jewel-Osco, which is owned by New Albertsons, has named Jim Rice as VP of operations for Jewel-Osco.
Albertsons named the division presidents who will lead the 877 stores it will acquire from Supervalu after the purchase agreement closes next month, the company said. The two companies agreed to the purchase in January.
