Celebrating over 124 years as your neighborhood grocer.
ACME Markets Inc. got its beginning in 1891 when two friends, Samuel Robinson and Robert Crawford, opened a small neighborhood grocery store at Second and Fernon Streets in South Philadelphia that emphasized quality products, low prices and friendly service. Over 120 years later, ACME remains dedicated to providing a high-quality grocery experience that our customers have come to expect.
Today, ACME operates 107 stores in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland, employing more than 10,000 associates. We continue to offer consumers fresh and convenient supermarket solutions, in addition to services such as Sav-on® Pharmacies – all tailored to the specific needs of the neighborhoods we serve.
ACME Markets Today – In 2013, our parent company, AB Acquisition LLC, acquired ACME Markets from SUPERVALU, a transaction that brought all Albertsons stores under singular ownership again and added Jewel-Osco, Shaw’s and Star Markets to the growing food and drug retailer. Today, ACME Markets operates 110 stores throughout Philadelphia, PA, New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland, which is part of a 2,200+ store operation that employs approximately 265,000 people nationwide.
All of our stores, no matter what banner they operate under, were founded around the philosophy of offering customers the products they wanted to buy at a fair price, with lots of tender, loving care. We still open our doors every day today with that in mind, and because of it, we run really great stores.
