The discount grocery store’s closing has created more worries for families in the west Dayton area that already do not have enough full service grocery options, one concern that was voiced when the store announced its closure back in December.

“The people that had to use this facility know very well how important it is on this side of town. People who don’t, don’t understand”, said one Dayton resident.

The grocery chain still operates stores in Englewood, West Carrollton and Kettering.
