(Aug. 13) WILMINGTON, Del. — The parceling out of bankrupt grocery distributor Fleming Cos. Inc. continues, and a sale of Fleming’s wholesale grocery business is expected to close soon, according to an attorney involved in Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act claims against the company.

A hearing on the sale of Fleming’s grocery distributorship to Brattleboro, Vt.-based C&S Wholesale Grocers Inc., for $400 million, was scheduled Aug. 14.

Minneapolis-based food distributor and retailer Supervalu Inc., meanwhile, said Aug. 10 that it had reached an agreement to buy certain Fleming assets from C&S.

Fleming also is working with a New York real-estate consultant to auction off property in October.

C&S is expected to win approval from the bankruptcy court in Wilmington — perhaps as soon as the Aug. 14 hearing — to buy Fleming’s wholesale grocery business, after which Minneapolis-based Supervalu said it would complete a deal with C&S.

Supervalu said it signed a letter of intent to acquire from C&S Fleming’s Wisconsin operations in La Crosse and Milwaukee, as well as Massillon, Ohio.

The Aug. 14 hearing was a follow-up to two previous hearings that had been continued because of some unresolved creditor claims, said Larry Meuers, an attorney in Naples, Fla., who is representing 56 produce suppliers with more than $9 million in claims.
