Kroger Co. plans to close many of its Fred Meyer Jewelers stores throughout the U.S.

Seventy-one Fred Meyer locations that operate within Kroger Marketplace stores will close by the end of May, the Cincinnati Business Courier reports.

The grocer said in a statement: “As part of our ongoing portfolio review, we have evaluated the business performance of Fred Meyer Jewelers in our Marketplace stores. We have made the decision to bring more focus to our vision of service America with food inspiration and uplift.”

Fred Meyer Jewelers will continue its presence in the Pacific Northwest and Utah, in select malls, and online, Kroger stated.

Cincinnati-based Kroger operates 2,757 supermarkets and multi-department stores in 35 states and Washington, DC. Before the planned Fred Meyer Jewelers closures, it maintained 242 jewelry stores.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
