Bidders Interested In Superfresh Stores In Md.

BALTIMORE (AP) — Rival supermarket chains are placing bids on a dozen Superfresh stores poised to go out of business.

Superfresh’s parent, A&P, filed for bankruptcy last year and is trying to sell 25 Superfresh stores to pay off debt. Most of the stores are in the Baltimore area.

A joint venture between Village Super Market Inc. and Mrs. Green’s Management Court has agreed to buy 10 of the stores and convert two — one in White Oak, the other in Lutherville-Timonium — into ShopRite stores. SuperValu has also expressed interest in turning the Superfresh store in Ellicott City into a Shoppers Food & Pharmacy. The Baltimore Sun reports that the landlord of the store in Westminster is trying to buy that location.

A hearing before a bankruptcy judge is expected June 14.

    Is the Arnold/Bay Hills, MD Super Fresh site being looked into by another supermarket? That place is a gold mind!

    I AM SO SORRY TO HEAR THAT SUPER FRESH ( A & P ) IS GOING OUT OF BUSINESS. I KNOW A LOT OF GOOD EMPLOYEES THAT WORK AND USE TO WORK FOR SUPER FRESH. I PREY THAT THOSE SUPER FRESH EMPLOYEE’S WILL NOT HAVE ANY PROBLEMS IN FINDING NEW JOBS WITH BENEFITS.

    SOME OF THOSE EMPLOYEES STARTED OUT WHEN THE SUPER MARKET WAS KNOWN AS A & P.

    I FEEL BAD FOR THE EMPLOYEE’S THAT FELT THAT THEIR LONG TIME INVESTED WITH THIS COMPANY WOULD SECURE THEIR RETIREMENT;.SO NOW WHAT ARE THE SENIOR EMPLOYEE’S TO DO. A LOT OF JOBS WILL NOT HIRE PEOPLE IN THEIR LATE 50’s OR 60 AGE GROUPS.

    Frank, I hope you pray for them and not prey on them…..read before you submit.

    This is very sad for Maryland, we don’t need more people losing jobs.

    Hardly anyone works at the Super Fresh near me in Glen Burnie. They replaced all the cashier’s with self check out lines. A lot of customer’s quit going there because of it.
