ST. PAUL — Cub Foods is taking on Wal-Mart Stores Inc. in a fight over the busy St. Paul-Midway shopping district.
Cub Foods is suing Wal-Mart and demanding that it stop carrying so many groceries at its newly-remodeled Midway Marketplace location, which Cub Foods says violates an old lease agreement. The two stores sit next to each other at the Midway location.
The Walmart store wants to carry more groceries. Cub Foods wants to be the development's only grocery store. Wal-Mart says the provisions of the lease no longer apply. It moved into the space when Kmart went through bankruptcy in 2003.
The St. Paul Pioneer Press says the lawsuit by Cub Foods' parent, Supervalu of Eden Prairie, was filed in Ramsey County District Court.
