ShopRite subject to antitrust claim in fight to squeeze Wegmans

Wegmans' bid to open a store in Hanover, NJ took an interesting twist recently, when the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit issued a decision reversing a previous ruling, and holding that Village Supermarkets, a ShopRite operator and Wakefern member, may be subject to an antitrust claim related to its efforts to thwart Wegmans' plans.
