Shaw’s closing six stores in R.I., Mass.

Posted:

WEST BRIDGEWATER, Mass. – The Shaw’s supermarket chain said last week it plans to close six “underperforming” stores in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, The Associated Press reported.

The stores scheduled to close by early next month are in Fall River, Fairhaven, Stoughton and Taunton in Massachusetts and Westerly and Woonsocket in Rhode Island.

Based in West Bridgewater, Mass., Shaw’s said the stores have not been profitable for quite some time. Efforts to turn them around have not worked, the company told the AP.

Management will work with unions to find displaced workers positions at other Shaw’s stores.

The company, owned by Cerberus Capital management LC, will continue to operate more than 160 Shaw’s and Star Market stores in five New England states. •
