MINNEAPOLIS — Supervalu here said Tuesday that it would acquire eight Albertsons stores in Wyoming from Albertsons LLC for an undisclosed sum. The stores were among the units acquired by Albertsons LLC, the Boise-based consortium led by private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management as part of Supervalu’s purchase and break-up of the former Albertsons Inc. in 2005. Supervalu said it would continue to operate the stores — located in Casper (two stores), Cheyenne (two stores), Cody, Gillette, Laramie and Sheridan — under the Albertsons banner as part of its 243-store Intermountain West Division. Supervalu currently operates Albertsons stores in Rock Springs and Jackson, Wyo. The deal is expected to close in late January.
