Short Take: HomeRuns' parent to merge with Food Lion

Food Lion plans to merge with Hannaford Brothers, which owns online grocer HomeRuns, in a $3.6 billion deal that will create the sixth-largest company in the food retailing industry. A Hannaford spokeswoman said she didn't expect any changes within HomeRuns as a result of the merger. Hannaford launched HomeRuns in 1996 in Massachusetts, where it delivers groceries that customers order from its Web site.
