Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

Roundy’s Supermarkets Inc., which owns the Pick’n Save store located at 2210 Rapids Drive, told the state it planned to close that location by June 27, according to the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development.

This was after it told the city and the Pick’n Save employees in March that it would not be renewing its lease and the store will close by the end of the year. But that timeline has been moved up.

The 66 employees who work at the store were told that despite putting in a number of initiatives at the store to stay competitive, the long-term performance did not produce the results it need to meet the company’s business goals.

We’ve got a phone call into officials with Roundy’s to find out more about the decision.
