It currently has 188 stores across northern, central, and western Illinois; eastern Iowa; and portions of northwest Indiana. Jewel-Osco and Jewel are currently wholly owned subsidiaries of Boise-based Albertsons.
Who is the parent company of Jewel-Osco?
In 2013, our parent company—AB Acquisition LLC—acquired Jewel-Osco from SUPERVALU. This transaction brought all Albertsons stores under singular ownership, and additionally expanded to include ACME Markets, Shaw’s and Star Markets to its growing roster of food and drug retailers.
Is Jewel owned by Albertsons?
In 1999 Albertson’s acquired American Stores’ assets (including Jewel, Osco, Lucky Stores, Acme Markets, and Sav-on Drugs). After the grocery distributor and retailer SuperValu Inc. purchased Albertson’s in 2006, Jewel and Osco became wholly owned subsidiaries of SuperValu.
