G&G Supermarkets, a landmark family-owned Sonoma County grocery business for over a half century, has been purchased by Safeway stores, the two companies said Thursday.
Pleasanton-based Safeway has agreed to hire 250 G&G employees at the company’s Santa Rosa and Petaluma stores at “the same compensation or better,” said G&G CEO Teejay Lowe.
The exact date for the business change has yet to be announced but should be by the end of the year, Lowe said.
G&G workers at both store locations learned of the sale Thursday morning in meetings with Safeway and company officials.
Terms of the sale were not disclosed.
