Nearly 20 Bi-Lo and Harveys grocery stores will close in South Carolina as their parent company continues to struggle.
Southeastern Grocers released its restructuring plan Thursday, revealing 19 stores it will shut down in South Carolina. The list includes four Bi-Lo shops in the Charleston area and three Harveys in Columbia. Three more Bi-Los were identified for closure in the Anderson/Clemson region.
In a statement, the company said it believes closing the stores will better position it to survive in the long term.
“We have not taken these steps without careful planning and consideration,” the release stated. “As part of this restructuring, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to close 94 underperforming stores.”
Southeastern says it will still have more than 580 stores after the restructuring process finishes in 90 days.
