Two Food World stores to close

PELHAM, AL (WBRC) - By Melanie Posey

PELHAM, AL (WBRC) - At the Pelham and Trussville Food World stores hang signs that say Liquidation Sale and Everything Must Go. The stores have just about one month before they end operations.

Officials with Southern Family Market say they bought the stores a little over a year ago and put an immense amount of human and financial capital into making them successful. But recent challenges in the economy have meant the stores will be no more.

Officials say a total of 87 stores will be impacted. Shoppers will still be able to find Food Worlds in Alabaster and Homewood.
