MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Kroger will close one of its East Memphis stores.
The lease for the Kroger on South Perkins Road is set to expire in May 2016, but the store will close to the public on March 26.
The store is only a mile from the store on Truse Parkway and less than a mile from the store on South Mendenhall Road.
All 81 staff members will be offered jobs at nearby Kroger Stores.
"We believe by not renewing the lease, we can better serve our customers at our nearby locations," said Teresa Dickerson, public affairs manager at Kroger Delta Division.
