Big Supermarket Chain Announces it’s Closing a 2nd Store in New Jersey
A big supermarket chain contines to close a handful of stores across the country and now not one, but two of those locations are in the Garden State.
And when you hear that a supermarket is closing, one question that comes to mind is, "Why?"
If everyone has to eat shouldn't it be easy to run a supermarket?
Well, not exactly.
Like any other business, lots of factors are in play including real estate/lease issues, competing stores, and more people shopping online, just to name a few.
And that's not to mention supply chain issues, problems finding employees, an increase in shoplifting, and, of course, inflation.
Second store shutting down
With those factors in mind, according to NJ.com, Lidl will be closing its store on Mt. Holly Road in Burlington Township this Sunday.
The news of that store closing comes just days after it was announced that Lidi's store in Howell, Monmouth County, was also ending its run after a few years of offering bargains.
Officials with the chain said both locations were "underperforming locations."
Still almost two dozen left
Those saddened to hear the news that two Lidl stores are closing can still visit the nearly two dozen other stores remaining open in the state.
Lidl stores stretch from Park Ridge and Riverdale in North Jersey, Eatontown and Toms River in Monmouth-Ocean, down to Egg Harbor Township and Vineland in South Jersey.
