Ukrop's CEO Still Searching For Dutch On Map

Nearly a week after announcing that Ukrop’s Super Markets Inc. will be sold to a division of Dutch company Royal Ahold, officials at the Richmond-based grocery chain said today that they remain uncertain as to where the country of Dutch is located.

“Fairly certain it’s in Europe someplace,” said Ukrop’s CEO Robert S. “Bobby” Ukrop, noting he spent a better portion of yesterday evening looking at a world map in search of Dutch.  “I can’t find it on here anywhere…perhaps I’ve got a bad map, or maybe Dutch was founded after this map was made?”

Ukrop said he has “used a fine-toothed comb” in looking for Dutch and noted that he may take up a foot search for the country when he visits family for Christmas in his Eastern European homeland of Ukropia.
