"At the Acme offices, it affects approximately 25 associates," said Supervalu spokesman Mike Siemienas.
The cuts include vacant positions that will remain unfilled and existing jobs that will be eliminated, the company said.
"These reductions are necessary to help further strengthen and accelerate Supervalu's business turnaround in a very competitive marketplace," corporate president and chief executive Craig Herkert said in a statement.
In April, Supervalu announced layoffs of 900 unionized Acme Markets workers, mostly part-time store-level clerks. Two-thirds of the jobs eliminated were from stores in Southeastern Pennsylvania and South Jersey. That move was intended to trim costs to match an ongoing decline in sales.
For several years now, the corporation has been working to execute a business turnaround strategy in light of declining revenues and a struggle to remain profitable against a proliferation of competing supermarkets that include low-cost retailers Wal-Mart, higher-end Wegmans and others.
Acme is one division, along with Shaw's, Jewel-Osco and others, that comprise a nationwide total of 1,104 traditional retail stores in Supervalu's portfolio. The publicly traded corporation does not disclose to investors financial results for each of its supermarket divisions.
