The article presents a market-by-market assessment of the aftermath of the business failure of Alberston's in most of its major trading areas in the U.S., as well as the challenges and likely strategies for the operators that are trying to recover from the missteps and market forces leading to the demise of the retailer. The primary challenge lies with its biggest successor, Supervalu, poised to pick up the lion's share of Albertsons' assets and assume the No. 3 spot in the grocery industry by revenue.
