BERWYN – Meijer will close its store at 7111 Cermak Road in Berwyn, effective June 17, according to a company news release.
"Based on recent volume we have determined it would not be economically feasible to remain open," the release stated.
The company also will close its store at 950 Winston Plaza in Melrose Park.
About 300 Meijer employees are affected by the closings, according to the release. They were notified March 21.
The company is working with these employees to identify opportunities at other Meijer stores in the area, the release stated. However, severance packages will be available to team members who are not interested in accepting a position at a different Meijer store.
The Berwyn Meijer opened in 2012. It is a leased space, and the site will continue to be maintained by the property owner, according to the release.
