Econofoods to close before Family Fare opens
On Sunday, Sept. 9, the Econofoods on Main Street will change to Family Fare. Both Econofoods and Family Fare are owned by SpartanNash, a company based in Michigan.
The day before the opening of Family Fare, the Econofoods on Tyler Road will close its doors. According to a store manager, some of the employees at that location will move to Family Fare.
The management team said today it learned about the "Econo West" closing two days ago, Aug. 27, so the decision on who will be transferred to the new store has not yet been made.
Those currently working at the downtown Econofoods location will retain their job after the transition.
A ribbon-cutting celebration for Family Fare, the store with a new name and new look, will take place 10 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 12. The event will include food samples and door prizes.
