Genuardi’s in South Jersey to Close Before Year’s End

Vernon Ogrodnek / The Press of A.C.

At the beginning of this year, Genuardi’s grocery stores were being sold off in the hopes of saving these stores nationwide, but South Jersey’s locations are without a buyer and will close before 2012 is over.

It is expected that over 100 Genuardi employees between the Egg Harbor Township and Barnegat supermarkets to be looking at unemployment after December 15th – the day when the Genuardi’s doors will close in our area for good.

This has been a tumultuous year for many Geuardi’s locations throughout the region – the parent company Safeway, Inc.,  had sold 16 of their stores to Giant for $106 Million (most of those stores in the Philly region), then Weis Markets purchased 3 Genuardi’s locations north of Philly, the Cherry Hill location closed its doors over the summer, and Safeway failed to find anyone to purchase the South Jersey locations.

The Press of Atlantic City reports that the South Jersey Genuardi’s are still ordering from suppliers and will remain fully stocked until about 2 weeks prior to their closures.
