They see themselves spinning off about 400 stores.

That is Krogerís opening proposal.  A single entity owned by the old Albertsonís stock holders containing the overlapping stores. 

Wells-Fargo on the other hand thinks Kroger will have to sell off more stores, about 550 and do so region by region.  W-F is probably correct, a 450 store company with stores in random unconnected places (Texas, inter mountain West, SoCal, DC-BAL, Chicago) would be unwieldy.  Selling a region off to a big chain that doesnít do business there, would make more sense.

It would be a disaster in Chicagoland, especially considering the fact that we've barely recovered from all of the Dominick's being shuttered at the end of 2013.  Kroger would have to decide between shuttering or selling off the Jewel-Osco locations (I assume they'd rather do that than shutter or sell off Mariano's, Food 4 Less, and Roundy's).

I've been assured that the chain is called "Jewel's" because there are more than one of them.
