The Save-A-Lot shop at 200 Main Street is scheduled to close on Saturday.
Roberta Douglas, who co-owned the business with her husband, stated that they were recently informed that the building was being sold, and that their lease would not be renewed.
Since its inception, the owners, employees, and customers of the discount grocery shop have been worried about its fate for many years.
The property was listed on the market in January 2017. It was later sold to an entity in Chenango County for $608,000.
The new owners tried to sell the property as redevelopment by Binghamton University’s Health Sciences Campus at Corliss Avenue drove up property prices.
The latest real estate listing had an asking price $1,150,000
Douglas observed that many of the loyal customers who used to live in the neighborhood no longer live there. They lived in apartments that were torn down by Binghamton University.
She stated that closing the store will cause hardship for many people who live nearby, as they won’t be able to drive to other grocery stores.
Six people worked at the Save-A-Lot location.
