This Regional Grocery Store Is Closing Another Location

"Closing a store is always a tough decision, but we are focused on growing our business."

A regional grocery store chain owned by Albertsons is about to shutter another location in New Jersey. It's one of several supermarket brands that have closed dozens of stores over the past 12 months.

The Bound Brook Road location in Middlesex will shut its doors for good on Feb. 3, according to NJ Advance Media. A store employee confirmed the closure to the outlet, but they didn't provide a reason for the decision.

The same spokesperson confirmed the Middlesex closure to Eat This, Not That! in a statement:

"ACME Markets announced on Tuesday, January 4, 2022, its plans to close its store in Middlesex, NJ due to real estate considerations. The store is expected to close by February 3, 2022.

"Closing a store is always a tough decision, but we are focused on growing our business and reinvesting those resources into our existing stores along with aggressively exploring new sites. We look forward to continuing to provide our customers with clean, fresh, full, and friendly shopping experiences. Associates who are interested in remaining with the company will have the opportunity to transfer to open positions at nearby stores."

While ACME has recently shut down locations, other supermarket chains are opening up new stores—here's a list of four chains that are expanding right now.
