BiLo Buying Another 134 Stores in FL/GA/SC
BiLo Holdings was approved by the Federal Trade Commission yesterday to buy the struggling Harvey’s, SweetBay and Reid’s grocery chains from Delhaize. Most of the stores in two of the chains are located in rural sections of GA/FL and SC, with SweetBay’s in some metro areas. According to one report, some will be re-flagged as BiLo stores,others as WinnDixies such as in FL. The acquisition increases BiLo Holdings’ store count to 685 after BiLo and WinnDixie merged in 2012. Last year, it bought 22 Piggly Wiggly stores in the Lowcountry that now fly the BiLo flag. Abigail Darlington of The Post and Courier has the story.
