Just yesterday, after more than 41 years in business, Fort Thomas Matters reported that Alexandria’s County Market will close its doors soon.
County Market 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 was strong in reaction to that news. More than 200 people posted on the store's Facebook page with concern and wishes for the future.
Calls for clarification to Sonic corporate headquarters were not returned. Fort Thomas Matters will share any new information as it unfolds.
