NEW YORK (AP) — Supervalu Inc. says it reached a deal to sell five of its biggest grocery chains —  Albertsons, Acme, Jewel-Osco, Shaw’s and Star Market — for $100 million in cash plus more than $3 billion in debt.

The sale to AB Acquisition, an investor group led by Cerberus Capital Management, will include 877 stores.

The group will acquire the stores for $100 million in cash, and the new company will assume $3.2 billion in existing debt.

Following the sale, Supervalu will consist of a food wholesaler, Save-A-Lot, and regional chains Cub, Farm Fresh, Shoppers, Shop `n Save and Hornbacher’s.

Supervalu said grocery retail veteran Sam Duncan will replace CEO and Chairman Wayne Sales after the sale.
