A grocery store is going out of business, and that’s going to make it tougher for some people to find fresh food.
The Super Dollar Discount Food located on By Pass Road will close on August 5th.
The store managers wouldn’t say why the store is closing, and calls to the corporate office in Abingdon have not been returned.
Customers say they’re sad to see the store go, because it’s convenient and has low prices.
“I think it will have a big impact on the community for a lot of people depending on their pay scales and stuff, but like I said I don’t like to fight the big lines at Kroger, Food Lion, all that kind of stuff, I can come down here and be out of here in 30 minutes,” said Lin Cannaday, a customer of Super Dollar.
Super Dollar has seven store in Virginia. The Vinton store is the only location shutting down.
