Minneapolis-based grocery chain Supervalu said Monday that it had reached a deal to sell grocery discount chain Save-A-Lot to a private equity investor.

Onex Corp. agreed to pay $1.4 billion in cash for Save-A-Lot, which owns 472 stores and licenses naming rights and supplies another 896 locations.

Supervalu, which has 3,342 stores, including the Save-A-Lot locations, said it would use the cash from the transaction to pay down debt.

The company in January had signaled plans to possibly spin off Save-A-Lot into a separate publicly traded company.

“Today’s announcement is the result of a thorough process to maximize the value of the Save-A-Lot business and best position Supervalu for future success,” Supervalu non-executive chairman Jerry Storch said in a statement.

Supervalu shares (SVU) rose 8.2% in pre-market trading to $5.42.
