The company said its Kroger store in Searcy will close this spring after nearly a decade of struggling with the sale.
Delta Kroger division officials announced on Thursday that the store at 1601 E. Race Avenue is expected to close on May 1 due to poor performance and sales issues.
“Every year we evaluate our stores and their success in the communities they serve,” said Victor Smith, president of the Kroger Delta Branch. “Closing the store is a difficult decision, and we take it very seriously. The financial benefit of this store is low and it cannot continue to operate while maintaining our low price for our customers. Even during the epidemic, we were in Searcy, Arkansas, the store was also underperforming, so we decided to close it. ”.
