RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The Food Lion at 9035 W. Broad St. in Richmond is scheduled to close later this summer.

A company official says the lease is ending at the West Broad Commons Shopping Center and that all associates at the store have been offered positions in nearby locations.

This closing comes less than two months after Food Lion announced plans to remodel 71 stores in Central Virginia.

Food Lion issued a statement:

Food Lion has made the difficult decision to close its store located at 9035 W. Broad St. in Richmond, Va., as a result of the lease ending at this location. The store will close later this summer. All associates employed at this store have been offered positions in our nearby locations. We appreciate the support of our dedicated associates and loyal customers at this location for many years.
