MADISON (WKOW) -- Cub Foods today announced plans to close two locations, one in Madison and one in Beloit.
The Nakoma Cub store located at 4716 Verona Road will close by mid March of 2009, and the Cub on Park Avenue in Beloit will also shut down within the year.
Cub Foods released this statement today:
"In light of a difficult economic environment, Cub Foods has evaluated its stores and identified opportunities to strengthen its overall business. While the decision to close a store is always difficult-given the impact on associates and customers-it is guided by what is best for the company's ongoing success and future growth.
"Cub would like to thank customers of the Nakoma store and remind them that the other Madison Cub stores located at 4141 Nakoosa Trail and 7455 Mineral Point Road are ready to serve them with the same great prices, selection and service they've come to expect."
