Ellensburg Community Morning Show, Thursday, July 11

The Ellensburg Safeway is on a list of stores that would be sold in the Kroeger-Albertsons merger proceeds.


Ellensburg Safeway on list to sell

The Ellensburg Safeway would be sold to C&S Wholesale Grocers if the merger of Kroger, the owner of Fred Meyer, and Albertsons, which owns Safeway, is allowed to proceed. The list of 124 stores that would be sold as part of the $25 billion merger was released on Tuesday. C&S is based in New Hampshire. The Cle Elum Safeway would not be sold as part of the merger. Regulators are asking the federal court to pause the merger to investigate it for possible antitrust violations.
