Kroger announced on Friday it is closing its store on Orchard Lake and Maple Rd. in West Bloomfield on Saturday, July 16.

According to the company, the closure stems from a recent review that determined it could not continue operating the store.

"Kroger continually evaluates each store's performance to ensure it is best meeting the needs of the customers, associates and stockholders we serve, President Jayne Homco said in a release.

All 85 workers inside the store will have the opportunity to transfer to another Kroger location in the surrounding area.

According to Homco, the other Kroger in West Bloomfield will remain open, as well as four other stores in neighboring communities.
