East Huntingdon grocery store to close by end of month | TribLIVE.com

JK’s County Market grocery store in East Huntingdon is closing its doors after 35 years.

According to owner John “JK” Krystyniak, the store will close at the end of the month — a decision he called “the end of an era.” He did not provide a specific date for when the store would close.

“It was a very difficult decision,” Krystyniak said. “There’s a lot of really good people working here, they have a lot of really great skills.”

He attributed the decision to close the store to a changing culture of people not preparing meals at home, a declining population in the area and an overabundance of grocery stores. In the immediate area around JK’s County Market, there is Aldi, a German discount grocery chain that opened in East Huntingdon in January, Walmart and Save-A-Lot.

CVS closing 46 stores: See the list of CVS Pharmacy locations closing

CVS Health is closing 46 of its stores, saying the locations were “underperforming” as the drugstore chain continues to shift more of its retail presence toward health care services.

The move cost CVS about $135 million as a “store rationalization charge” in its first-quarter earnings report.

The cuts represent fewer than 1% of the about 9,600 CVS Pharmacy stores nationwide.

The closures, which happened over the last two months, include a 64,000-square-foot location in Springfield, Missouri, once described as the largest CVS in the world.

They also included four stores in Chicago, two in San Francisco and two in Minneapolis. (Scroll down to see the list.)
