Kroger to close store on Dickerson Pike

The Kroger supermarket chain said Friday that it’s closing its store at 3046 Dickerson Pike, which has endured $1 million in losses over the last two years.

“The store has experienced significant losses, and the financial projections going forward are even more discouraging,” said Melissa Eads, a Kroger spokeswoman.

Sixty-two employees will be offered jobs elsewhere within the chain.

Eads said the store will close within 60 days, but an exact date wasn’t released.
