Ukrop’s Super Markets to close one store

BY Alaric DeArment

RICHMOND, Va. A supermarket chain in Virginia has announced that it will close one of its stores next month.

Ukrop’s Super Markets said it would close its store at Ivy Market in Roanoke, Va., on Oct. 24. The First Market Bank branch inside the store will remain open until Dec. 18.

“We are making this announcement this afternoon after talking with store leadership about this tough decision,” Ukrop’s chairman, president and CEO Bobby Ukrop said in a statement. “We wish it had worked out differently. It’s painful for many reasons, not the least of which is that we will no longer be able to offer employment to associates who have diligently served Ivy Market customers.”
