Our Business and Operations

Food stores are our primary business and account for approximately 94% of total company sales. Our convenience and jewelry stores and manufacturing facilities contribute the remainder of total sales. The information below is current as of November 30, 2017.

  • We operate 2,790 grocery retail stores in 35 states under nearly two dozen banners.
