Fresh & Easy is closing 14 underperforming stores, a spokesman told SN Friday.
"While recent initiatives have helped drive additional sales across the Fresh & Easy business, in the case of these locations the progress was not enough to bring their performance in line with the rest of the business," spokesman Brendan Wonnacott said.
The stores, which are closing as soon as Friday, are located throughout the retailer's territory including San Diego, Los Angeles, Arizona and Las Vegas, reports said. Fresh & Easy, which at one time ran more than 200 stores, will operate fewer than 100 stores following the closures.
