Scott's Food & Pharmacy is a supermarket chain in the Fort Wayne, Indiana market. The company was once a wholly owned subsidiary of SuperValu, but was acquired by The Kroger Co. in 2007. At the time of its purchase by Kroger, the chain had 18 locations. By late 2014, that number had dwindled to two locations as a result of stores being closed or rebranded under the Kroger banner.[1]

History[edit]

Donald G. Scott opened his first store in 1954. In 1963, with partner William Reitz, he built Scott's Food Stores into a dominant grocery store chain in northeast Indiana. In 1991, Scott's was acquired by SuperValu, Inc., who later renamed it Scott's Food & Pharmacy. It soon grew with a few more stores under SuperValu. Scott's was sold to The Kroger Company in 2007 for $33 million.[2] In July 2007, Kroger announced that they would be closing five stores in Indiana effective August 4, 2007. Donald Scott died in 2008. Kroger currently operates Scott's under the Central division, which includes Owen's Market and Pay Less Food Markets. As of May 2015, the remaining Scott's stores are located in Fort Wayne and Kendallville.
