Approval from the Federal Trade Commission has paved the way for the Shop 'n Save at 500 N. Antrim Way, Greencastle, to become a MARTIN’S Food Markets.

The store will close at 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 27, for conversion and reopen at 8 a.m. Friday, April 5, after extensive remodeling.

The FTC has approved the proposed acquisition of five corporately owned Shop ‘n Save locations from SUPERVALU INC. This follows the purchase agreement announced by GIANT Food Stores, which owns MARTIN’S Food Markets, on Nov. 6, 2018.

In addition to Greencastle, the following stores are part of the sale:

22401 Jefferson Blvd., Smithsburg

409 North McNeil Road, Berryville, Va.

147 Roaring Lion Drive, Hedgesville, W. Va.

1317 Old Courthouse Square, Martinsburg, W. Va.

“Our team is really excited to bring MARTIN’S Food Markets to these vibrant communities,” said Nicholas Bertram, president, GIANT Food Stores. “We put our customers at the heart of everything we do, and with the addition of these locations, our new neighbors can count on farm fresh produce and quality products their families will love.”

The completion of the acquisition follows a series of investments that the company has recently made to its store fleet and family of brands in Pennsylvania, including the recent opening of the first GIANT Heirloom Market in Philadelphia, where three additional locations are planned to open this year; the grand opening of its new GIANT DIRECT e-commerce hub in the city of Lancaster; and new stores opening this year in the East Stroudsburg and Walnutport communities.
