According to the recent reports, it is coming into notice that some of the Louisville residents are upset after one of their only places to grocery shopping closes early during the weekend in Derby. Kroger is in District 26 and Broadway is closed and the car park is fortified.
Concrete barriers can also be seen blocking the entrances to the nearby Dino’s Food Mart. It’s a sight that pissed off many residents because the Kroger, one of the only places to shop for groceries in the area, closed early.
Moreover, the Louisville Metro Police Department said in a statement Friday evening that it had put barriers in parking lots to “ensure the safety and security of citizens and businesses in that area,” according to Alicia Smiley, a spokeswoman for the Police Department. Smiley added that the barriers had been set up “for the purpose of controlling traffic only” and “would not obstruct pedestrians in that area.” When asked to explain why the car park was closed and closed, Smiley said district 26th to 28th and Broadway had “been hit hugely” in recent years over the weekend in Derby.
Furthermore, “Sometimes it prevented employees from leaving, so companies shut down early,” she said. “This year some companies in the region have returned to this practice.” “Traffic issues make it very difficult to respond to emergencies. We are engaged in a careful balancing act to keep our community safe so that all of our citizens and visitors have the opportunity to participate in the Derby celebrations.” Smiley said the LMPD would be present in the area “to ensure the safety of pedestrians and motorists.”
Kroger further said in this regard that they decided to close early because he wanted employees to be able to close the store and exit the parking lot before it closed. Now, what are your thoughts on it? Let us know in the comment section below!
