Dutch supermarket giant Ahold Delhaize, whose chains include Giant, Food Lion, and Stop & Shop, is suspending its Bfresh brand of smaller-format, urban-focused grocery stores, which it had planned to open in Philadelphia as part of a larger national rollout.

The company still plans to use the Philadelphia real estate that it secured to accommodate Bfresh stores but is rethinking its concept for those locations, two people with knowledge of the company’s plans, but who were not authorized to discuss them publicly, said Monday.

The 3,700-square-foot Everything Fresh grocery store at 1222 Walnut St., which Ahold’s Fresh Formats LLC division opened in December 2014 as a prototype for the smaller-format stores, plans to close Saturday, Ahold spokesman Chris Brand said in an email Monday.
