Fourth & Final Albertson's Closes Its Doors

A local grocery store closed its doors for the final time Sunday.

The Albertson's grocery store located at Loop 289 and Slide is the fourth and final Albertson's to close in the Hub City. 

NewsChannel 11 is told the store had been struggling financially for quite a while and corporate decided it was best to close down. About 100 people lost their jobs as a result of the closing.

As you may remember, the store at 4th and University closed in November of 1997.

Another closing did not follow until March of 2005 -- when the Albertson's at 4th and Slide shut down. And most recently the store on 50th and Indiana put up closed signs on March 11.
