DEERFIELD , Ill., April 28 (UPI) -- A U.S. bankruptcy judge said Walgreen Co. could purchase 34 Drug Fair stores in New Jersey for a price of $55.95 million.

Drug Fair, owned by private equity group Sun Capital Partners, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in March, The (Newark, N.J.) Star-Ledger reported Tuesday.
