On Friday, June 22nd “Your Local Market” announced via their Facebook page that they would temporarily close their grocery store effective last Saturday. Leading up to the closing the entire store was practically 40% off in an attempt to clear out of their inventory.
Founder, Jason Brown has recently communicated to customers via Facebook & email that their business has been struggling financially. The store will close and reevaluate the business model and products sold.
Below is the message most recently posted on their Facebook page:
“Thanks for all your support over the past 8 months and especially these weeks as we’ve been working through our game plan going into the future. We will be closing the store (our goal is TEMPORARILY) this Saturday and continuing to work towards our goal of reopening with a slightly different format based on how you’ve told us and shown us you prefer to shop. MORE fresh Foods for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner as well as a 50% larger Fresh Produce selection. Until we have a clear game plan we will be putting our Facebook page on a hold status- again, with the goal being to emerge and come back stronger and ready to take care of you. If you have any direct questions you would like addressed, please e-mail Jason directly at email@example.com
Again, thank you for all the great energy you continue to share with us.”
