Leevers Adds Second Grocery Store In Devils Lake, Where It Was Founded More Than 70 Years Ago

Nash Finch Company (Nasdaq: NAFC), a Minneapolis-based food distributor, announced today that Leevers Foods, Inc. is purchasing Wally’s Supermarket in Devils Lake, N.D., which will be Leevers’ second location in that community. In addition to Devils Lake, where Leevers is based, Leevers owns stores in other North Dakota cities including Cavalier, Langdon, Rolla, Rugby and Valley City.

Leevers Foods is owned and operated by second-generation owner Robert Leevers and his two children, James Leevers and Beth Leevers-Dunn. Founded more than 70 years ago by Robert’s father Norman Leevers, Leevers Foods has built a strong tradition of providing the finest quality grocery, meat, and produce to their local shoppers, as well as a commitment to delivering outstanding customer service.

“It is exciting for us to own a second supermarket in Devils Lake, where we opened our very first store. We are grateful for the support the Devils Lake community has shown us over our history, and are pleased to be able to offer them a second location to shop with us,” said Robert Leevers, President of Leevers. “We are excited about our new partnership with Nash Finch, another company rooted in Devils Lake, North Dakota. Our companies together have over 200 years of service to consumers, and we are excited to continue that tradition of offering outstanding service to our customers. We appreciate Nash Finch’s dedication to the success of independent supermarket retailers and the opportunity provided for us to grow our business,” continued Leevers.

“We are passionate at Nash Finch about serving family-owned businesses like Leevers and actively look for opportunities to assist our customers in growing their business and securing their futures,” said Alec C. Covington, President and Chief Executive Officer of Nash Finch Company. “At times, helping a customer grow may mean transitioning one of our corporate-owned stores to an independent owner. Here, we concluded that the best way to serve the consumers in Devils Lake was to partner with the Leevers, the local experts who live and work in Devils Lake, and have a proven track record of outstanding service and dedication to their customers and their communities. We will focus on our core strength – offering superior service and making our world class private label program – Our Family® - available to all of Leevers customers. We appreciate all the hard work that the associates of Wally’s Supermarket demonstrate each and every day, and look forward to a continued relationship with the store as a Nash Finch customer.”
