I’ve searched for the major shareholders of the biggest supermarket chains in the US. I was surprised that relatively a lot of these chains aren’t publicly traded because they are “privately owned”. Many of these corporations are reportedly owned by its employees.
In the last couple of years a relatively large amount of the biggest supermarket chains have been merged to form even bigger companies.

Not publicly traded are:
Albertsons Companies LLC - “privately” owned by investors (including Cerberus Capital Management).
Aldi – privately owned (founded by ALbrecht brothers, from Germany).
H.E. Butt Grocery Company - privately owned.
Giant Eagle, Inc - privately owned.
Wegmans Food Markets, Inc - privately owned.

Hy-Vee, Inc – employee owned.
WinCo Foods LLC – employee owned.
Publix Super Markets – employee owned: http://www.4-traders.com/PUBLIX-SUPE...77682/company/

The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company (A&P) - ceased supermarket operations in November 2015, after 156 years in business.
Southeastern Grocers, LLC – In May 2018, its restructuring plan was confirmed by a U.S. Bankruptcy judge in Delaware.
