In the wake of Supervalu’s pending sale of six bigg’s supermarkets in the Cincinnati area to Erlanger, Ky.-based Remke Markets and the closure of an additional five stores, 547 positions are being eliminated, 436 of them in southwest Ohio and another 111 in northern Kentucky.
The job cuts will occur by the end of May, according to a filing Minneapolis-based Supervalu made with the Worker Adjustment Retraining Notification Act (WARN), a federal mandate that requires employers to notify workers when job cuts of 50 or more workers occur.
Supervalu said it would close the following five bigg’s stores before the end of May:
—Eastgate, 4450 Eastgate Blvd., Cincinnati
—Harrison, 10501 New Haven Rd., Harrison
—Colerain, 8340 Colerain Ave., Cincinnati
—West Chester, 4824 Union Center Blvd., West Chester
—Florence, 4874 Houston Rd., Florence (Ky.)
