Fred’s on Brookway Boulevard also closing

Fred’s announced today that its Brookway Boulevard location will also close, in addition to its downtown store.

The company announced another round of closures, citing an “ongoing effort to rationalize its store footprint.”

The downtown Brookhaven location was on the first list of closures announced a few weeks ago.

“These additional store closures are a difficult, but necessary step in the continued restructuring of Fred’s,” said Joseph Anto, Fred’s CEO.

Fred’s intends to close the 104 impacted stores announced today by the end of June. The downtown location is expected to close by the end of May.

Liquidation sales are currently underway at both locations, according to the company.

According to property records, the downtown Brookhaven building is owned by Fred’s. The Brookway building is owned by Brookway Village LLC of California.

Fred’s locations in Crystal Springs and Hazlehurst will also close.
