News of Supervalu Lawsuit Tops SN Content

A new controversy involving Supervalu garnered the most page views last week. SN readers were also interested in Tesco's potential sale of Fresh & Easy. The second and third most viewed stories — a blog post and a news story — provided context into Tesco's decision to conduct a strategic review of Fresh & Easy "with all options under consideration" and how it got to this point. An article looking into Ahold's steps toward market leadership and a gallery tour of Haggen: Northwest Fresh complete SN's list of top five most viewed content for the week.
