Super 1 Foods has announced they will be closing their grocery store located at 1605 Harding Street in Pine Bluff on November, 1.
The announcement, which cites “serious staffing issues” and “the buildings lease expiring” as reasons for the closure was posted in a social media post made Tuesday night.
You can read the entire announcement below:
Due to serious staffing issues and the building’s lease expiring, we have made the difficult decision to close the Super 1 Foods location at 1605 Harding Street in Pine Bluff. The last day of operation for this Super 1 Foods location will be Tuesday, Nov. 1. There will be no loss of jobs because all employee-partners will be transferred to neighboring Brookshire Grocery Company store locations.
We did not take this decision lightly but know it’s the right decision for our team. It’s better for our team to be concentrated in our other more profitable BGC stores in the Pine Bluff area. BGC has proudly served the Pine Bluff community for more than 25 years, and we look forward to years of success ahead. We care about our neighbors and are committed to doing what we can to further support the Pine Bluff community. Our company’s mission is to create and deliver exceptional experiences and value to our customers through our core values of excellent service, integrity and doing our best every day. Our employee-partners working together at our other store locations will strengthen our service to Pine Bluff.
After the closing of the Harding Street location, the other three Super 1 Foods stores in Pine Bluff, along with our Brookshire’s store in White Hall and Spring Market store in Redfield, will continue their operation with the employee-partners from Harding Street joining their team. All pharmacy prescriptions at the Harding Street location will automatically be transferred to the Super 1 Foods on Hazel Street.
