business news in context, analysis with attitude

Published reports say that the UK's third-ranked supermarket chain, Sainsbury, plans to bid the equivalent of more than $200 million to acquire TM Group, a company that controls three small c-store chains.

The move would follow Tesco's decision to add to its c-store network through the acquisition of the Administore c-store company.
