Kroger to close two WV stores

Feb. 08, 2014 @ 12:00 AM

CHARLESTON -- Citing sluggish sales, Kroger Co. announced Friday it will close its store at the Quincy Center near Riverside High School in Kanawha County on April 11.

It's one of two West Virginia stores that will close this year. The company will also close an underperforming store in Weston later this year as well.

Kroger moved into the 31,000 square foot location along E. DuPont Avenue in 1986. It currently has 20 full-time and 36 part-time employees.

Company spokesman Carl York said the eastern Kanawha County location was strictly a financial decision.
