KEASBEY, NJ – Wakefern Food Corp. Has announced that Madison Foods, a third-generation family grocery business, has joined the Wakefern cooperative with plans to convert three Save A Lot stores to Price Rite Marketplace stores in Massachusetts.

Owned and operated by the Slawsby family, Madison Foods is a successful, local business in the Boston area. The family company will begin converting their Save A Lot stores to Price Rite Marketplace – a registered trademark and banner of Wakefern Food Corp. -- in the coming weeks.

The three stores to be rebranded are located in Roslindale, at the American Legion Shopping Center, 650 American Legion Highway; Roxbury, Washington Park Mall, 333 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., and Brockton, East Ashland Shopping Plaza, 240 E. Ashland St. A fourth Price Rite Marketplace will be newly opened by the Slawsby family in Dorchester, at 500 Geneva Ave., in January.

Customers can expect their favorite store features to remain – including experienced butchers and a variety of ethnic foods and value products -- as the locations are renovated and new exclusive brands added. Customers will also notice new advertising circulars with special deals for the Price Rite Marketplace locations.

“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. I want to thank shoppers for their support and patience as we undertake rebranding efforts and make the change to Price Rite Marketplace.”
