Yesterday, Shoppers’ parent company, United Natural Foods Inc., UNFI, announced 13 Shoppers locations are being sold to other companies and four locations are being closed permanently.

Thankfully, the Shoppers in College Park is not in the list of these 17 stores. College Park store plus 21 other stores will remain open as “Shoppers” in the future, until further notice.

Earlier this year, UNFI closed Shoppers’ 30 in-store pharmacies and sold their prescription files and pharmacy inventories to CVS Pharmacy and Walgreens. Founded in 1929, Shoppers serves the Baltimore, northern Virginia communities and District of Columbia markets.

Here is the list of the stores that will be sold or closed:
