Another Kroger is closing early, this time in Durham

July 30, 2018

Monday is the last day of business for another Kroger store that is closing early in the Triangle.

Officials say there isn’t enough inventory to keep the store at 3825 S. Roxboro Street open.

In July, the Kroger located at 6300-150 Creedmoor Road in Raleigh closed a month earlier than expected at the request of a gym that is buying the store.

Boxes and empty shelves can be seen at the S. Roxboro Street Kroger and other stores in the area, as Kroger has offered large discounts to get rid of groceries.

As a result, two other Kroger stores will close their doors early in the coming week. The store on Falls of the Neuse Road in Raleigh will close Wednesday, and the store on Southwest Durham Drive in Durham will close on August 8.

Three Kroger pharmacies, two in Durham and one in Raleigh, will also close this week. Kroger says the remaining 10 stores and 11 pharmacies are on schedule to close Aug. 14.

Those who work at the Kroger stores and pharmacies that are closing ahead of schedule will be transferred to other stores for the last few weeks.
