A major grocery store in Elk Grove is closing next month due to economic challenges and competition from other retailers.
The at 7707 Laguna Blvd. will close on June 18, the company said Wednesday.
"Save Mart Supermarkets closes a store only after exploring all other options but unfortunately, this store has not been able to effectively compete in this difficult economic climate," Vice President of Save Mart Operations Ed Popke said in a written statement dated May 29. "Unfortunately, the failing economy and the competition from other retailers have kept this store from performing at the level required to sustain it."
Popke called the move a "difficult business decision," and said the chain was "working closely with union representatives to assist [its] employees through this store closure."
