PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y. -- Cedar Shopping Centers, Inc., based here, yesterday said that it had acquired a portfolio of eight properties in Virginia and Pennsylvania anchored by, or leased entirely to, supermarkets, for $93.8 million, exclusive of closing costs and fees.

Six of the properties are in Virginia Beach, Suffolk, Norfolk, Smithfield, and Hampton in the Chesapeake region of Virginia, and two are in Dubois and Mechanicsburg in central Pennsylvania. The Virginia properties are anchored by Supervalu division Farm Fresh, while the Pennsylvania properties are anchored by Ahold subsidiary Giant Food Stores of Carlisle, Pa. and its banner Martin Food Stores.
