As of Monday night, the Maplewood Shop ‘n Save employees were still waiting for word on what would happen with their store. On Tuesday they found out.
The Maplewood Shop ‘n Save is set to close by the end of June, according an announcement on the Union Local 655 Facebook page Tuesday afternoon.
On the Union Local 655 Facebook page:
‘’We have just been informed that the Maplewood Shop ’n Save store will be permanently closed by the end of June, 2018. The company will be meeting with employees to let them know and their Local 655 Union Rep is in the store right now to speak with members. All employees will be offered transfers to other stores to prevent any job losses. We will remain in contact with our members in the store as well as the company to help make this transition as easy as possible.’’
SuperValu is looking to sell their Shop ‘n Save locations in Missouri and Illinois, the union told its members in early May.
