ASHEVILLE, N.C. (Gray News) - Organic grocery store chain Earth Fare has announced it is closing all 50 locations.
The North Carolina-based company cited retail challenges as the primary reason for shutting down.
“Earth Fare is not in a financial position to continue to operate on a go-forward basis. As such, we have made the difficult, but necessary decision to commence inventory liquidation sales while we continue to engage in a process to find potential suitors for our stores,” the company stated in a news release.
The stores will begin liquidation sales, and employees were notified of the closings.
Earth Fare has locations in 10 states.
