C&S Wholesale Grocers was the high bidder during an auction for the assets of Associated Wholesalers. Associated Wholesalers is operating under Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
If approved, C&S Wholesalers will attain control of Associated Wholesalers’ independent distribution business and its White Rose wholesale business. White Rose serves chains in the northeast region, including Fairway Market and Met Foods. C&S is expected to find out if the company’s bid was high enough during a hearing in early November.
