Shaw's was founded in the year 1860. The company has been active for almost 159 years now. The founder of the company was George C Shaw. Shaw’s is one of the oldest markets in England, UK. The company had been sold several times over the years and currently operates as a subsidiary of Albertson’s. In the year 1919, Davis had purchased the George C Shaw Company and made it a subsidiary of Brockton Public Market or commonly known as BPM. As the company continued to grow, it was decided that a central warehouse would be very much needed for the two companies, without a doubt. In the year 1961, a warehouse in Brockton was therefore purchased as well.
In the year 1965, the company founder had begun to expand northward, into New Hampshire as well. This expansion was combined with BPM's growth as well, in southern Massachusetts, USA, had moved the companies to build a distribution centre in the year 1972 in East Bridgewater, Massachusetts, USA. During the year 1980s, a warehouse was made in Wells, Maine, USA and in the year 1991, Shaw's had opened a new distribution facility for perishable food items as well in Methuen, Massachusetts, USA. In the year 1978, BPM stores in Massachusetts had become Shaw's Supermarkets as well, in order to maximize advertising. It was the very first step towards merging the two companies together. Then in the year 1983, J Sainsbury PLC - the UK's largest supermarket group, had purchased 21 per cent of the company's outstanding stock. Again in the year 1987, Sainsbury's had acquired the controlling interest in the company too. In the year 1995, the company had entered the Connecticut market, by opening almost five stores. The next year, Sainsbury had purchased 12 former Edwards supermarkets and two future sites from Royal Ahold as well. During the year 1999, the company had made its most significant take over by acquiring the Star Market chain. Star Market had always been owned by Investcorp, which in turn had purchased the chain from American Stores in the year 1994. American Stores had acquired Star Market through its hostile takeover of the Jewel Companies as well. As of the year 2004, J Sainsbury had sold the company to Albertsons for about $2.4 billion. Finally, as of the year 2009, Shaw's closed its Bristol and Shelton, Connecticut stores. The company had also closed stores in Gorham, New Hampshire, and Bangor, Maine, USA. The most significant round of closings was in the year 2010. There was also a recent series of closings was in the year 2011. After the closures, the company was left with just 169 stores. As of the year 2012, Shaw's and its then-parent company, SuperValu, announced that Shaw's would sack 700 employees as well. In the year 2013, Cerberus Capital Management had announced to acquire 877 stores in the Albertsons, ACME, Jewel-Osco, and Shaw's and Star Market chains from the company, SuperValu for almost $100 million and also taking over of $3.2 billion on SuperValu debt as well.
