Brownwood Kroger closing in March 2018

BROWNWOOD, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) - Brownwood's only Kroger store is set to close in March of 2018.
 
The store, located at 302 N. Main Street, is underperforming and numerous attempts to increase profits have resulted in failure. 
 
A representative released the following statement on behalf of the Kroger Corporation: 
 
Since 1978, this location has served thousands of families in the community. Within the past several years, we attempted to increase sales, profitability and store conditions, but despite our best efforts, we were not successful. We have made the very difficult decision to close the store in early March of 2018.  It is important to note, our team spends several weeks and months assessing all alternatives before closing a store.
 
We never want to close any store; however, we cannot continue to operate stores that do not perform to company expectations for profitability. This store will continue to operate until its closing. We have unique sales plans in place to sell down inventory and provide deeply discounted products to associates and customers.
Kroger is offering severance packages to 61 employees affected by the closure.
