One of two Food Lion stores in Havelock is scheduled to close by the middle of October, according to the company.

Christy Phillips-Brown, director of external communications and community relations, confirmed Tuesday that the Greenfield Heights Boulevard grocery store would be closing. Food Lion opened the store on Dec. 11, 1996.

“The lease was coming up for renewal in October, and we made the decision not to renew the lease at that location,” Phillips-Brown said.

She did not indicate the reasons as to why the company would not renew its lease at the location. She did not have a specific date of the store’s closure but said it would happen by Oct. 12.

Phillips-Brown said the Food Lion Store on East Main Street near McCotter Boulevard would remain open.

“That store will actually be remodeled,” she said, adding that the work will take place sometime this year.

She did not have the exact number of employees who work at the Greenfield Heights location but said they would be moved to other stores.
