Since the mid-1990s, per capita income (as a percentage of national per capita income) has been steadily dropping for residents of Northeastern Indiana. But new data released this week shows the downward trend may have finally turned the corner.
Officials from the Kroger grocery chain announced today the company will not reopen its North Anthony location in Fort Wayne, which was shut down due to major structural issues.
Earlier this year, several public officials lobbied to keep the store open, but the company ultimately deemed the problems beyond repair. The pharmacy adjacent to the North Anthony Scott's will also close.
In a statement, Kroger Central Division President Bob Moeder said employees at the North Anthony store were told Friday morning they could transfer to other locations.
