Consumers who shopped this summer at Shoppers Food & Pharmacy, which has 20 Baltimore-area stores, could have been victims of credit card data theft, owner Supervalu Inc. said. The Minnesota-based retailer, which owns Shoppers and other U.S. supermarket chains such as Farm Fresh and Shop 'n Save, alerted customers it had a breach in the computer network that processes payment cards at some of its stores. Account numbers, expiration dates and/or cardholders' names could have been stolen, although the company has not determined whether any thefts occurred.

If there is one criticism that is most consistently delivered by the opponents of Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown in his quest to replace Gov. Martin O'Malley, it is that he is a paragon of the status quo, the anointed son of an insular Democratic Party establishment. If he wanted to prove his critics' point, he could not have found a more damning way to do it than with his support for disgraced state Sen. Ulysses Currie for re-election. Mr. Currie is facing a spirited primary challenge in the 25th District in Prince George's County, which Mr. Brown used to represent in the House of Delegates.

Shoppers Food & Pharmacy will close two unprofitable stores in Maryland on Friday. The stores to be closed are at 11120 Reisterstown Road in Owings Mills and 2430 Broad Ave. in Timonium. The grocery chain is also closing three stores in Virginia. The closings come shortly after SuperFresh, whose parent company is operating under bankruptcy, also closed stores in Maryland. "Given the competitive markets we operate in, and today's difficult economic environment, it is occasionally necessary to close those stores that are not profitable," Shoppers said in a statement.

Natural Markets Restaurants Inc. has opened eight of its Fresh & Green's supermarkets in Maryland and Washington, D.C., as it takes advantage of space made available by the departure of a rival grocery chain. Superfresh closed 25 stores earlier this month as its bankrupt parent, the Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co., looked to cut costs and raise money to pay creditors. It found buyers for 12 of the stores but wasn't able to sell the others. The Fresh & Green's stores had all been opened by Monday, but will continue to stock up in coming weeks, the company said in a release.

Shoppers Food & Pharmacy workers at some Maryland and Virginia stores have filed unfair labor practice charges against the grocer, accusing store managers of retaliating against workers whose union is negotiating a labor contract. Members of United Food & Commercial Workers Local 400, which represents more than 2,000 employees of stores in northern Virginia and in Maryland south of Baltimore, filed the case last week with the National Labor Relations Board. The union said managers have stopped workers from discussing the contract talks with customers and have harassed them off the clock in an attempt to intimidate employees into accepting a contract that includes deep wage and benefit concessions.

When Mondawmin Mall in West Baltimore opened in 1956, it was one of the first indoor shopping centers in the country and a marvel for consumers, who flocked to its stores from across the region. Anchored by two major department stores, Sears & Roebuck and Hochschild, Kohn & Co., it boasted two pharmacies, three shoe shops, a barbershop, a bakery, a hardware store and a florist among its 40 tenants. In the years since, however, the fortunes of the Rouse Co. development on a former estate of Baltimore businessman Alexander Brown have gone up and down with the city's changing demographics and competition from trendier suburban malls.
