Weis Markets Inc. on Monday said it was buying three Genuardi's supermarkets from Safeway Inc. - two in Montgomery County, on Ridge Pike in Conshohocken and on West Germantown Pike in Norristown, and a location on Old Dublin Pike in Doylestown, Bucks County.
No sale price was disclosed. Weis said the suburban stores would operate under the Genuardi's name until the deal was completed.
The trio of Genuardi's stores nearly doubles the Weis presence in suburban Philadelphia, raising its tally of stores to seven. Weis Markets' four existing local stores are all in Montgomery County, said company spokesman Dennis Curtain, with none in Philadelphia or Bucks, Chester and Delaware Counties.
