Locally Owned Supermarkets

In the past few years Star Supermarket said farewell to the islands, Times Supermarket was sold to a mainland company, Longs Drugs Stores was bought out by CVS, and recently Foodland closed it's Hawaii Kai location. It makes me wonder if an era is ending and locally owned supermarkets are becoming a thing of the past. I just hope that Foodland won't throw in the towel completely anytime soon especially since they are the last supermarket chain that is truly locally owned.
