Unexpected Grocery Store is Now Making A Closure in Wisconsin

An unexpected grocery store is now making a closure in Wisconsin, leaving the community mourning the loss of its location.

Piggly Wiggly has closed its store in Brookfield, Wisconsin as of June 6.

Located around 15 miles from downtown Milwaukee, it is one of the chain’s 500 stores nationwide.

The store’s general manager Earl Brunelle confirmed the closure to Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and said it was prompted by the building owner.

A note posted in the store shared the news.

Since then, heartbroken locals have shared their sadness over the closure.

Owner of the store Ralph Malicki told The U.S. Sun it feels like a “death in the family”, and said that he’s “extremely sad.”

Shoppers have taken to social media.

“Sad inflation is driving everything out,” wrote one on Facebook.

“NO NO NO!! One of our favorite stores!! Why????” asked another.

A third shared: “The employees were always really nice. Even though I lived closer to Pick ‘n Save, I’d take the extra time to go to the pig. Sad to see it go.”

The store was previously slated to close on June 15.

However, the aisles became incredibly sparse leading up to the closure, the Sentinel reported.

Items were marked as 50% off.

However, Piggly Wiggly is not the only grocery chain with a store closing down soon.

The closure of the ShopRite in Ellenville, New York will leave shoppers in a food desert, forcing them to drive farther to buy groceries, reports The-Sun.

Located around 100 miles from New York City, the beloved supermarket in the Hudson Valley region is closing due to an expiring lease.

It is just one of over 12 ShopRites set to close in the area.

The final month to shop will be October.

TGI Fridays is closing a total of seven restaurants in one state as part of the company’s ongoing growth strategy.

This comes after the chain abruptly closed 36 locations across 12 states in at the beginning of the year, per The-Sun.

The restaurant chain will pull the plug on seven locations across the state of New Jersey in the coming weeks.

Today, Fridays will welcome in famished diners at its location in Brick for the final time.

“As we continue along our path of transformation to revitalize the Fridays brand and implement a long-term growth strategy, we see a bright future for TGI Fridays,” said Weldon Spangler, CEO of TGI Fridays earlier this week.

“We are at the helm of a pivotal moment that will allow us to explore boundless advancement, expansion, and innovation to keep delivering ‘That Fridays Feeling’ that our fans know and love.”

Before the closures, TGI Fridays had about 270 US locations, according to the company’s website.

“As part of the store closures, TGI Fridays is offering more than 1,000 transfer opportunities, which represents over 80% of total impacted employees,” the company previously said in a statement.

“Our top priority has always been delivering a superior experience for each and every TGI Fridays guest, and we’ve identified opportunities to optimize and streamline our operations to ensure we are best positioned to meet – and exceed – on that brand promise,” said Ray Risley, US president and chief operating officer, in the release.

Eight other locations were sold to former CEO Ray Blanchette, a longtime stakeholder who will acquire the previously corporate-owned restaurants.

The sale comes as major changes have been made to the brand’s leadership, including the news of Weldon Spangler being made CEO.

“As we continue along our path of transformation to revitalize the Fridays brand and implement a long-term growth strategy, we see a bright future for TGI Fridays,” said Spangler in a statement.

    Correction: Ralph Malicki owned the Piggly Wiggly in Racine that recently closed. The one in Brookfield was owned by the Sendik family and was formerly a Sendik’s.
