Madison Foods – owned and operated by the Slawsby family — has joined Wakefern Food Corp. with plans to convert three Save A Lot stores in Massachusetts to Price Rite Marketplace stores this month.
The three stores to be rebranded are located in Roslindale, at the American Legion Shopping Center; in Roxbury at the Washington Park Mall; and in Brockton at the East Ashland Shopping Plaza.
A new, fourth Price Rite will be opened in Dorchester in January 2021.
“I am excited to welcome the Slawsby family to our Wakefern cooperative, which is made up of family-owned, independent grocers with a 75-year history in the supermarket business,” said Joe Colalillo, Wakefern Chairman and CEO. “These stores will expand the Price Rite Marketplace brand in the Boston area and bring the Price Rite commitment of value and quality to the communities of Roslindale, Roxbury, Brockton and Dorchester.”
The new Price Rite locations will offer existing store favorites – including experienced butchers and a variety of ethnic foods and value products — as well as several Own Brand products such as the popular Bowl & Basket and Paperbird lines, and our award-winning Wholesome Pantry brands line.
“We will continue to provide all the things our customers know and love while adding more variety and award-winning store brands that the Wakefern cooperative offers,” said Todd Slawsby, president of Madison Foods who runs the business with his father, Harold, and brother, Jonathan. “This is the exciting next chapter in my family’s history in the grocery business.”
