Customers Now Mourn The Surprising Loss of a Grocery Store

Customers now mourn the surprising loss of a grocery store as its final days come to an end soon in Atlanta, Georgia.

A Kroger location’s recent closure has sparked arguments online about what contributed to the grocery store’s demise, reports The-Sun.

While some people are shocked, many people began speculating the reason one of Kroger’s metro Atlanta locations, in Georgia, plans to shut down for good.

“Let the blame game begin,” one person wrote on Facebook.

“When you walk through the doors, you can smell the seafood counter that’s in the rear of this place. I drive to the next closest Kroger instead,” a shopper claimed.

“That store is old, needs to be torn down & come back with a new building,” another person added.

“Kroger is in the habit of closing its smaller stores in affluent areas and letting Publix build a brand new store in that location,” a third person speculated.

Others admitted they were just sad to see the store go.

“No, I love that Kroger. I make a stop there for flowers and a snack before I visit the river,” one customer commented.

“I guess I would have to drive from Vinings up to Windy Hill for the next Kroger. Wish they would stay there,” another person added.

The company announced that it was closing its Cobb Parkway location on August 17.

Despite other customers’ ideas, the retailer announced that the shutdown was due to the lease ending, reports The-Sun.

All 70 of the staff members are planned to be assigned to other locations, according to Kroger’s press release.

The grocery store is also looking to discuss the reassignment process in detail within the coming weeks.

A massive clothing retailer is now closing all 540 stores in just six weeks after unexpectedly filing for bankruptcy.

Liquidation sales will be held at rue21 outlets across the US as bosses rush to clear the last remaining stock.

The clothing retailer has entered bankruptcy and bosses have announced plans to close all 540 remaining stores within six weeks, reports The US Sun.

It is the third time in less than 25 years the fashion retailer has entered bankruptcy, per Bloomberg.

Court documents seen by Reuters revealed the company has more than $190 million of debt.

The chain has 540 stores across the US and 4,900 workers are set to be impacted.

Outlets are to slam shut within four to six weeks, according to court papers.

Bosses also announced plans to sell the company’s intellectual property.

The company narrowly avoided going into bankruptcy in October 2022.

Chiefs filed for bankruptcy in 2017 as they rushed to clear around $700 million worth of debt.

Bosses shuttered 400 stores as well and renegotiated leases.

Execs identified the rise of online shopping and changing consumer trends as reasons behind the bankruptcy.

Michele Pascoe, the interim CEO, also alluded to the impacts of competition and inflation.

The company also filed for bankruptcy in 2002.

At its peak, the company had more than 1,000 stores across the US.

The chain has dozens of outlets across several states, including Florida, Georgia, Illinois, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Texas.

The teen fashion retailer is not the only clothing chain that has entered bankruptcy over the past year.

Last month, Express chiefs filed for bankruptcy, and at least 100 stores are set to close.
