SPRINGFIELD, Mass. Big Y reportedly is closing its deal to acquire seven A&P stores in northern Connecticut.
The Springfield, Mass.-based retailer said the sale will be completed on Nov. 1, according to the Boston Herald. Big Y owns stores in Massachusetts and Connecticut and has served these markets for nearly 75 years.
As previously reported by Drug Store News, grocer A&P announced in September an agreement with Big Y to sell the stores as part of its turnaround strategy.
"We continue to evaluate our operating footprint and its alignment with our turnaround strategy. These seven stores were clearly outside of our core markets, and their sale was necessary," Sam Martin, president and CEO of A&P, stated at the time.
