The Kroger Co. announced Friday the store 1415 Byrne Rd, located inside the Southland Shopping Center, will close on Monday, August 14.

The Kroger fuel center located at the site will close on the same date.

Bill Green, VP of Operations for Kroger's Columbus Division says, "Closing a store is always a difficult decision. Unfortunately, despite a number of investments in the store over the past years, and our store team's best efforts, we continued to see profits steadily decline at the Byrne Road store. After the first quarter of this year, it was decided to end operations at this location."

The approximately 115 associates employed at the Byrne Road location will be offered employment at other nearby Kroger locations. Kroger operates several locations in the area, including the store at 2555 Glendale Ave., approximately one mile away.

Kroger began operating the store in the Southland Shopping Center in 2003.
