More than 19 million shares of Milwaukee-based supermarket company Roundy’s Inc. went on sale starting today at $8.50 per share.
Proceeds from the initial public offering – listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol RNDY – are expected to be used to pay down debt.

Underwriters have a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 2.87 million shares from the selling stockholders to cover over-allotments.
