News Summary: Supervalu eliminating 1,100 jobs

NEW YORK (AP) -- JOB CUTS: Supervalu Inc. said Tuesday that it is eliminating about 1,100 positions nationwide, or about 3 percent of its workforce, less than a week after the supermarket operator completed the sale of five of grocery chains.

THE DETAILS: The reductions will include current jobs and open positions that won't be filled. The job eliminations will occur at nearly all company offices and across most departments. But store-level employees and the Save-A-Lot chain are generally not affected by the reductions, with more emphasis on corporate and store support center offices.

WHO'S LEFT: Supervalu has about 3,470 U.S. stores and approximately 35,000 employees.
