US-based food solutions company SpartanNash has expanded its range of offerings for shoppers by acquiring Shop-N-Save Food Centers (SNS).
Founded in 1973, SNS is a grocery chain based in north-western Michigan, US.
The retailer operates a total of three stores in Benzonia, Fremont and Ludington.
SpartanNash has integrated all these locations into its Family Fare brand following the acquisition.
The company has also retained all the employees from SNS’ stores.
The acquisition has increased the number of SpartanNash’s stores across the US Midwest to 86.
SpartanNash president and CEO Tony Sarsam said: “Shop-N-Save has been a successful family-owned and operated business for decades, and we are honoured that the DeVries family is entrusting SpartanNash to build upon their legacy and bring new offerings to its team members and grocery shoppers in Benzonia, Fremont and Ludington through our Family Fare banner.
“As a people-first company, we welcome the Shop-N-Save team into the SpartanNash family, and we look forward to earning the loyalty of our new community members.
“Our grocery stores are an important contributor to our business strategy, allowing us to provide a full portfolio of solutions for independent and chain customers that go beyond food distribution.”
In addition to the products currently available at SNS, including SpartanNash’s Our Family products, SpartanNash will offer fresh produce, a delicatessen, a bakery, a floral department, a pharmacy and meat and seafood counters.
The company will also launch its yes Rewards shopper loyalty programme at SNS stores.
SNS president Bill DeVries said: “We are incredibly grateful for the support of our communities these nearly 50 years, and we are confident that with SpartanNash, guests of the new Family Fare stores will continue to enjoy the same high level of service, quality and variety they have become accustomed to at Shop-N-Save”
Last month, SpartanNash partnered with grocery delivery platform DoorDash to expand its range of on-demand grocery offerings.
