Johnnie's Foodmaster is Closing in West Somerville, Too
West Somerville will be without a supermarket when Johnnie's closes. Liquidation sales have already begun.
A week after Johnnie's Foodmaster officially announced that its store on Beacon Street would become a Whole Foods, Boston.com has reported the Chelsea-based supermarket chain is closing all its locations, including the one in West Somerville.
Boston.com says an Illinois-based company, Hilco Merchant Resources, which specializes in liquidation services, has begun closing sales at all of the Johnnie's Foodmaster markets.
There will be discounts of up to 30 percent, and closing sales begin Nov. 2, Boston.com reports.
The closure of Johnnie's Foodmaster will leave West Somerville without a supermarket.
