Acme Grocery Chain Sold

The brand has a strong presence in the area, but its future is uncertain.

Acme Grocery Chain Sold

Acme Markets is among several chains the Supervalu company has sold to investment consortium Cerberus Capital Management, Supervalu announced Thursday.

There was no announcement from Supervalu or Cerberus about how the sale will affect the future of the grocery stores.

Acme has a location at 785 Starr Street in Phoenixville.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported in July that moves by Supervalu executives seemed to indicate they were looking for buyers for Acme and their other grocery "banners".
