PLEASANTON, Calif. — Safeway will be closing its two Genuardi’s locations on the New Jersey shore in December, local reports said. The closures would leave just two stores flying the Genuardi’s brand name.
Safeway earlier this year said it would exit the Philadelphia market and sold most of its Genuardi’s stores to Ahold’s Giant-Carlisle division. Other locations went to McCaffery’s Supermarkets and Weis Markets. Its stores on the New Jersey shore towns of Barnegat and Egg Harbor were not sold. However a report in the Press of Atlantic City (N.J.) said those stores would be closing in December. Genuardi’s stores remain open in Marlton, N.J. and in Audubon, Pa.
A spokesman for Genuardi’s parent Safeway was not immediately available for comment.
