Hungry food shoppers in Egg Harbor Township will have one less option to stock their shelves from after Labor Day.

JR's Fresh Market, which opened in the space once occupied by Genuardi's, on Fire Road in EHT will be closing in early September, according to The Press of Atlantic City.

In the article, owner Joe Rauh Jr., said, "we just couldn't keep up the fight."

JR’s opened in the summer of 2015, but recently faced massive competition from Walmart's new store just up Fire Road, which opened last summer.
