Two Vons supermarkets in Fresno will close in a month, a company official confirmed.
The last day for the store at Holland and Blackstone avenues is scheduled for June 12, said Keith Turner, senior communications manager. “We are working to place employees in other stores,” Turner said in an email.
Turner also confirmed the Vons at First Street and Nees Avenue also would close. The exact date was not disclosed.
Employees at the Blackstone Avenue store said they could not comment on the closure, but customers were disappointed.
“I think it’s a pretty bad situation,” said Cas Gomez, who works at Red Carpet Car Wash across the street.
“I’ve been shopping here the last 13 years. I know everyone here and feel pretty bad for them.”
Albert Alejandrez said he didn’t know where he would shop after the store closed.
“I like it here,” he said. “I like the Vons Card and I use the cleaners.”
