Mitchell Grocery says it felt that these stores were a great fit for Johnson's Giant Foods and The D'Alessandro Organization, LLC, and the decision to purchase these locations was made to expand the presence of grocery stores with quality items and low prices in these communities. "We are thrilled about this agreement and the opportunities it presents for two of our operators to expand and grow their businesses. We look forward to welcoming and serving new customers and employees in the Jacksonville, Oxford, and Pell City areas," said David Mitchell, President of Mitchell Grocery.
Mitchell Grocery Corp.'s distribution center is located in Albertville, Alabama, and currently supplies 175 independent supermarkets in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Florida.
Johnson's Giant Foods currently operates three stores in Gadsden and Attalla, Alabama.
