Giant Food Stores Acquires Nell’s Shurfine Market Store from C&S Wholesale
CARLISLE, PA – C&S Wholesale Grocers, Inc. sold its Nell’s Shurfine Market in Carlisle, Pennsylvania to Giant Food Stores for an undisclosed amount.
“Giant has been proud to call the Carlisle community home for more than 90 years,” Tom Lenkevich, President of Giant Food, said in a press release. “We are always looking for ways to grow our business and provide convenient locations to help our customers save money, save time and eat well.”
The acquisition of the 51,800-square-foot location is still being finalized, however plans are already tentatively set for the store to close temporarily on February 28th to convert it over to a Giant Food Store.
This conversion will include the chain’s newest marketplace style produce section, an updated and expanded prepared foods and deli department, as well as an expanded department for natural and organic items.
This is the latest in a spike of sales and acquisitions from C&S Wholesale, including the recent purchase of FrehKO Produce Services and a $15 million investment in a new Pennsylvania facility, both announced last month.
The acquisition is expected to close by the beginning of March, making this the second Giant Food store in the area.
Giant Food stated that Nell’s associates will have the opportunity to apply for positions at the new location. The company plans to reopen this newest location to consumers in late March.
