According to Oxford's dictionary, both "information on" and "information about" can be used.

I would also use an indefinite article in your exemplary sentence: "a local supermarket".

  • The phrase "information for" can be used as well, but that generally means something different, and would be structured accordingly. – J.R. Sep 17 '15 at 15:19
