Council members James and Sexton Smith to hold support rally to keep the Kroger store on Second Street open

January 13, 2017

Louisville – Council members David James (D-6) and Barbara Sexton Smith (D-4) will hold a support rally following the announced decision to close the Kroger located 924 S. 2nd St.

“It’s important that the neighbors in the surrounding area of this Kroger and Old Louisville show Kroger’s how important this store is to the community,” says James.

The rally is set for Saturday, January 21st at 11:00am at the Kroger parking lot on Second Street.

“We need to let Kroger know how senior citizens and others will be impacted if this Kroger closes its doors,” says Sexton Smith.

Kroger announced last week it was closing the store on January 28th citing the failure to agree on a new lease and financial losses.

 This Kroger closing announcement follows the closing of Pic Pac on Market Street, The First Link Store on Liberty Street and the Kroger at Southland Terrace.
