Ralphs supermarket in Canada is about to have its biggest day yet, when it will close for good.
The company, whose parent company is Wal-Mart, announced the decision Thursday to close the store after seven years in business.
“I have loved the service and the people we have worked with at Ralphs for over eight years,” CEO Ralphs CEO Rob Scott said in a statement.
“This decision will allow us to move on and focus on our mission to make life easier for customers, and give our employees the opportunity to do the same.”
Scott said the store would be re-opened by early next year.
“We have built a long-standing relationship with Ralphs over the years, and we are grateful for the many opportunities they have provided us over the last seven years,” Scott said.
“I am confident that our team, with our team of talented associates and the many loyal customers we have helped, will be able to continue to meet the needs of our loyal customers.”
Ralphs has a long history of making it easy for people to shop for groceries and other items at its stores, with the store’s online ordering system allowing shoppers to buy groceries, groceries at home and other groceries from local stores.
It has also been able to help people with their home and grocery shopping.
