It all started in 1915. Founded and operated with core values such as hard work, family, and a principle of serving the customer first, Star Market has become the iconic grocery chain that it is today. We’re proud to say that almost a century later those values continue to shine incredibly bright at Star Market.
In 2013, our parent company, AB Acquisition LLC, acquired Star Market from SUPERVALU, a transaction that brought all Albertsons stores under singular ownership again and added Jewel-Osco, ACME Markets, and Shaw’s to the growing food and drug retailer. Today, as part of the company’s Shaw’s division, Star Market operates 19 stores in the greater Boston area, which is part of a 2,200+ store operation that employs approximately 265,000 people nationwide.
