NEW YORK (Reuters) – Italian supermarket Pomegranata will close for one week on Wednesday due to the pest control system, the country’s grocery industry association said on Thursday.
A representative of Pomega said the supermarket had received information that it could be closed due the potential contamination of the pest controls in the area, which includes the countrys most famous supermarket, The New York Times reported.
Pomegranatas pest control unit said on its website on Wednesday that it has been monitoring the situation with local authorities.
The spokesman said Pomegarenas pest-control unit will be operating in all parts of the store.
The newspaper also reported that the Pomeganas supermarket chain will be closing its stores in the US next week due to what it said was a pest-contamination crisis.
The supermarket chain has about 5,000 stores in Italy.
