1500 Job Cuts in Maryland

Superfresh markets aren’t doing so hot these days—especially in the Maryland area, where 22 stores will be closing soon. A federal bankruptcy court awarded Superfresh permission to sell the stores, and the company is doing just that—resulting in nearly 1,500 job losses.

The stores have not been closed yet, but are being auctioned off soon—and if they are purchased by willing buyers, the employees could find employment with whichever businesses end up buying the stores. Keep your fingers crossed for the employees of Superfresh; hopefully they will all find jobs, either with the new buyers or elsewhere, soon.
