Judge Approves Bruno's Auction Results

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - A federal judge has approved the sale of
the Birmingham-based Bruno's Supermarkets chain to a grocery
wholesaler.

U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge Benjamin Cohen on Monday approved
the sale of the bankrupt grocery chain to Southern Family Markets
of Birmingham, the retail arm of New Hampshire-based C&S Wholesale
Grocers.

Bruno's, which has 56 stores in Alabama and the Florida panhandle, sold them for $45.8 million.

Southern Family Markets plans to continue operating 31 stores, but 25 will be closed and sold.
