CUDAHY -- The Pick 'n Save in Cudahy will close after an evaluation of the store's long-term financial performance.

TODAY’S TMJ4’s partner, The Milwaukee Business Journal, reports the supermarket's fiscal results were "not compatible with the business goals of its parent company."

Although an exact closure date has not yet been released, a Roundy's spokesperson told The Milwaukee Business Journal the store will likely shut down by the end of March.

Kroger has closed more than 10 of its Wisconsin stores. Most of those shutdowns occurred in 2017. The company will have 106 Wisconsin grocery stores after the Cudahy store closes.

"It’s always a difficult decision to close a store; however, closing underperforming stores ensures we have a strong network of stores," James Hyland, Roundy's vice president of communication and public affairs, told the Milwaukee Business Journal. "We are making significant capital investments throughout our Wisconsin store network for the benefit of our customers."

The store's 75 employees were informed of the closure on Tuesday, according to a statement by the company. Those employees affected by the Cudahy store closure will be offered an opportunity to work at another Pick 'n Save. 

Roundy's says its Cudahy shoppers can pick up their groceries at the nearby Pick 'n Save locations in St. Francis, South Milwaukee and Oak Creek.
