SpartanNash has announced that it will be shutting down three stores in the Omaha, Nebraska area in response to growing competition and changing consumer tastes.

Tom Swanson, Vice President of Retail Operations, SpartanNash's Western Division“At times, we must make the tough decision to close an underperforming store to better serve our customers at our nearby locations,” said Tom Swanson, Vice President of Retail Operations in SpartanNash’s Western Division, according to the Omaha World-Herald.

The stores are located at the following locations:

  • No Frills at 8005 Blondo St. in Omaha
  • No Frills at 1817 West Broadway in Council Bluffs
  • Bag ‘N Save at 15370 Weir St. in Omaha, near 156th and Q Streets

Any employees affected by these closures will be considered for open positions at other locations.

The Omaha World-Herald also reports, in light of this news, that SpartanNash will be investing $14 million to remodel eight stores. It is unclear at this time where these stores are located exactly in the Omaha area, but the publication says that four Bag ‘N Save stores and four No Frills stores will be rebranded as Family Fare locations.

The Family Fare stores will feature upgrades to the deli, bakery, dairy, and meat departments, as well as an expanded selection of wine and craft beer. Each store will remain open during the remodeling process.
