    This is all so sad as store employees have watched for at least 4 years what Supervalu has done to bring this company down. It would seem to be true that for 4 years all they worried about was hitting some kind of profit numbers without any concern for keeping the customer volume up in the stores. When times got bad for customers Supervalu jumped right in to make it worse instead of reacting to what customers demanded, lower prices. What is so bad now is it seems clear they are trying to make money to stay open until sold or split up, As CEO has said it will be by fiscal 2014 before all banners have the new lower prices in effect??? Today is the day for lower prices I would think.
