Food solutions company SpartanNash has acquired Metcalfe’s Market, a three-store grocery chain in Wisconsin.

All employees at the Madison and Wauwatosa, Wisconsin facilities will continue to be employed after the sale. The Metcalfe’s Market storefront, identity, and core shopping experience will stay unchanged.

Metcalfe’s Market, founded in 1917 by Henry and Teresa Hess, is a community mainstay that specializes in high-quality goods, sustainable methods, and a strong emphasis on local products, including Metcalfe’s Food Miles program. Former owners Tim and Kevin Metcalfe, great-grandsons of Metcalfe’s Market founders, will join the SpartanNash family of associates.

Metcalfe’s Market will increase SpartanNash’s presence in Wisconsin to seven locations. The company will also provide its expanded loyalty and rewards program.

“As a People First company, we welcome Tim, Kevin and the entire Metcalfe’s Market team into the SpartanNash family, and we look forward to earning the loyalty of our newest store guests,” said SpartanNash CEO Tony Sarsam. 

“As a food solutions company, we provide the ingredients for family meals and traditions – just like Metcalfe’s Market has for more than 100 years.”

According to the brand, as part of the acquisition, full-time Metcalfe’s Market employees will continue to receive a benefits package that includes a selection of medical, vision, and dental plans, as well as extra investments in paid time off, wellness perks, tuition reimbursement, and other benefits.
