Weis Markets announced yesterday that CEO David J. Hepfinger has resigned as CEO "to pursue other interests." Jonathan Weis, the company's vice chairman, has been named CEO on an interim basis.
Hepfinger served as CEO for more than four years, during which time the supermarket chain experienced significant store expansion and renovation programs, including the acquisition of several former Genuardi's stores.
More recently, Weis reported decreases in sales and comp-store sales for the second quarter of 2013.
Weis Markets has 165 stores in Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and West Virginia.
