Acme Markets, which operates three grocery stores in Lower Merion, 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 store in Bala Cynwyd (where a shopper won $1 million last year) and one in Penn Valley, as well as a Bryn Mawr store that reopened last year after renovations.
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".
