Delhaize’s Sweetbay to close 33 stores

BY Marianne Wilson

New York — Delhaize Group announced that it would close 33 under-performing Sweetbay stores in Florida by mid-February. The shutterings, which are part of a broader reorganization plan, amount to about one-third of the chain.

“While these decisions are difficult, especially given the impact on our associates, customers and communities, these actions will continue to enhance the performance of our overall store portfolio and further enable us to deliver profitable growth and accelerate shareholder value,” the company said in a statement.

Sweetbay will operate 72 stores after stores are closed.

The closures comes on the heels of a senior management restructuring Last week, Delhaize America cut 25% of its executive ranks and internally unveiled a new structure that includes about 50 officers, the Salisbury Post reported.

You might want to change the instructions a bit: The firewall on an EC2 instance is called a "security group" and is configured outside the EC2 instance. In fact, the security group has to be created/configured PRIOR to launching the instance, since security group membership is specified at launch time only and you CANNOT CHANGE which security group applies to an instance after the instance is launched.

Giant Food Stores to open in-store cheese and specialty food shop

BY Alaric Dearment

Carlisle, Pa. — Ahold banner Giant Food Stores is opening a cheese and specialty food store in central Pennsylvania, the supermarket chain said.

Giant — also known as Giant-Carlisle to distinguish it from fellow Ahold chain Giant Foods of Landover, Md. — said it had a deal with Philadelphia-based Di Bruno Bros. to open the store inside the Giant Super Food Store in Camp Hill, Pa. The new store-within-a-store will open on Jan. 24.

"We are thrilled to welcome the celebrated Di Bruno Bros. to our Camp Hill Super Store," Giant Food Stores president Rick Herring said. "By partnering with Di Bruno Bros., we’ll be introducing our customers to an amazing variety of high-quality, innovative specialty foods and products from Philadelphia’s authentic cheese experts."

The shop will feature more than 100 varieties of homemade, national and international cheeses and nearly 60 cured meats and antipasti, as well as crackers, jams, jellies, oils and sauces.

"While we have grown significantly within the Philadelphia market, we are excited to expand our business and the Di Bruno Bros. legacy into central Pennsylvania," Di Bruno Bros. president Bill Mignucci said. "This partnership will allow us to share our spirit of culinary pioneering with Giant customers so that they too can enjoy the vast world of cheese and the numerous accompaniments available to create delicious and interesting pairings every day."
