USA: A&P to close 13 Farmer Jack stores
US regional supermarket chain Farmer Jack has announced it is to close 13 Southeast Michigan area stores by mid-February as part of the company's continuing efforts to restore profitability.
This follows an announcement last week that the company will close its two Lansing, Michigan stores.
The company indicated that these closures would result in restructuring charges, which will generally be incurred during the fourth quarter of its current fiscal year.
Farmer Jack, which operates over 100 stores in the Michigan area, is a unit of US supermarket group The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co (A&P).
