CARLISLE, Pa. — Richmond, meet Martin.
Ahold's Giant-Carlisle chain here last week said that it would rebanner the 25 Richmond, Va.-area Ukrop's stores it acquired to its Martin's Food brand later this spring. In addition, the retailer said it would introduce beer and wine selections and Sunday shopping to the stores for the first time.
