Albertsons Cos.

Despite its 2015 merger with fellow grocery chain Safeway, Albertsons Companies Inc. faces competition from Amazon’s expanding food empire and Walmart’s investments into shopping technology. Albertsons is trying to strike back with the acquisition of struggling pharmacy chain Rite Aid, which would make the combined company worth about $24 billion. (The companies believe customers will appreciate a place to shop for groceries and drugs at once.) But some of Rite Aid’s shareholders threatened to veto the deal, worried they won’t get a fair premium in the new, combined company. And questions remain if the stagnating Rite Aid is the right business to push North America’s second-largest supermarket chain forward.
