History
Dates back to 1940s Food-A-Rama chain. In 1985, SuperRite Foods of PA bought the 48-store chain, eventually changing the store names to Metro Food Markets. Richfood Holdings, Inc. acquired the Metro chain in 1995. Metro joined SUPERVALU’s retail line-up in 1999, with its acquisition of Richfood. These stores will transition to the Shoppers Food Warehouse format and banner during SUPERVALU's fiscal 2004.
