I haven't heard of any, which makes me feel a bit optimistic about my location's future. Just a bit, though.

The Lewis Center Giant Eagle in Columbus, Ohio is slated to close this fall and they’re blaming it on the pandemic
Closings in COL coming soon. Converting stores to market districts to distract from the closing stores.
I honestly believe that some will close and I have a few locations here in the northeast Ohio area that I believe might close in the near future. At these three particular store locations, corporate has been doing the same BS they did to my store right before they closed it and this was way before the pandemic was a thing and this pandemic probably will be the final nail in the coffin for them. They weren’t ordering product or inventory like they used to and oftentimes they’d leave these items out on shelves EXTREMELY close to their expiration date like they’re trying to get every cent out of a sale from them, they’ve extremely cut hours at these locations and act like they can’t afford to pay employees, they axed security resulting in theft going up at these locations, there’s hardly anyone coming into these locations except for the 1st of the month, etc. These particular locations literally deteriorated and with the pandemic going on, it’s gotten even worse in them. With one of them, what ki---d them even more was when the Walmart across the street from them revamped their store adding a grocery department to it as well. I see these ones closing soon. In that same area, corporate retook ownership of a family owned GE and I think they’re trying to compare numbers to see which one of these stores produce the lowest amount of money for them so they can make the decision as to which one to pull the plug on. One of my old customers that I meet up with was even complaining about how bad it’s gotten in at least one of them. He also noticed the decline and neglect in there.
Please tell me I didn't miss any?
