Michigan-based SpartanNash buying N. Dakota chain
Bismarck, N.D. — Michigan-based SpartanNash Co. is buying more grocery stores in North Dakota.
SpartanNash is buying the Dan’s Supermarket chain in Bismarck-Mandan. Financial terms of the deal haven’t been disclosed.
Dan’s Supermarket CEO Dennis Bosch and Board Chairman Terrance Rockstad plan to retire after more than 40 years. The six stores being sold will continue operating under the Dan’s name and employees will keep their jobs once the deal is complete in early June.
SpartanNash will ship products to the Bismarck-Mandan stores from a Fargo distribution center, replacing current distributor Supervalu.
Dan’s sold its two Dickinson stores to SpartanNash in December 2013.
