Dillons is buying two Price Chopper Stores in Topeka and three Homeland grocery stores in Wichita from Homeland Acquisition Corp. Inc., an Oklahoma City-based subsidiary of Associated Wholesale Grocers.
Financial terms were not disclosed, and the deals are expected to close in February. Employees will have an opportunity to interview for jobs with Dillons.
Also Tuesday, Associated Wholesale Grocers announced it was buying four Kansas City-area Dillons stores - two in Shawnee, one in Olathe and one in Pleasant Hill, Mo. - and has plans to sell them to retailers who have agreed to be supplied by the company's distribution center in Kansas City, Kan.
