Eine Organisation, die sich 'Emporium' nennt, führt im Auftrag generalstabsmäßig Morde durch – kaltblütig und rücksichtslos.
Kriminalhauptkommissar Lehn und seine Sonderkommission verfolgen eine heiße Spur in Sachen 'Emporium'. Eine Jagd auf Leben und Tod beginnt.

Food Emporium’s history starts in 1919, when Louis Daitch founded Daitch Crystal Dairies, a public company trading on the American Stock Exchange. Over the years, he opened shops in the New York City area selling butter and eggs. Daitch’s supermarket chain peaked in 1962 with 103 stores, but the company’s growth was not focused. In 1973, Daitch changed its name to Shopwell Inc.

Following their failure in New England, the Rosengartens took stock of their situation. First, they concluded that for Shopwell to succeed it needed to focus on being a regional chain. The company reached a turning point during a 1979 management meeting. The participants made a chart with the names of the three Rosengartens at the top and 33 vice-presidents listed below them. During the course of trimming the size of the chain, the Rosengartens noticed that the remaining stores were mostly located in upper income neighborhoods, such as Manhattan’s Upper East Side and in Westchester County.

By the end of 1983, Shopwell had converted 17 of its 55 stores to the Food Emporium format. Another seven would be converted over the next two years, but the conversions proved costly. It took about 18 months for a Food Emporium to attain profitability, rather than the industry average of around eight months. Shopwell also tried moving into the economy sector of the supermarket trade, an effort that failed. A One Stop Shop cash-and-carry store opened in 1984 and closed that same year. 5 percent of Shopwell’s common shares, picked up 25 Shopwell stores, 3 Value Center Stores, 2 distribution centers, and a dairy, but the main the reason it acquired Shopwell was to add The Food Emporium format to its portfolio.

P acquired Dominion Foods and used The Food Emporium name in some stores soon after the acquisition. This format garnished well into the mid-1990s. Kohl’s department store chain was not affected. P entered Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on December 12, 2010, and exited on March 13, 2012.

P announced its intention to sell its 16 The Food Emporium stores as part of its plan to return to profitability. P announced that it was filing for bankruptcy for a second time. The company liquidated in late 2015, selling as many stores as possible to competitors, and closing the remainder. At the time, The Food Emporium operated 11 stores in Manhattan, and one in New Canaan, Connecticut.

All stores were sold to other operators, with the exception of the unprofitable 59th Street Bridgemarket store. Key Food also acquired four The Food Emporium stores during the liquidation. The other The Food Emporium stores were purchased by Morton Williams, Gristedes and Acme Markets. P, and three are additional stores opened by Key Food.
