After more than 41 years in business, Alexandria’s County Market will close its doors soon.
Owner Dave Kremer said the company made the decision when its lease came up. "We looked at how the economy was going and our business, and decided not to renew our lease," he said.
Sentiment is strong in reaction to the news. More than 200 people posted on the store's Facebook page with concern and wishes for the future.
The store is in the process of liquidating its stock, and the last day has not yet been set.
