Rosauers Supermarkets Inc. will close its

"We have long considered an update to the facility to better compete," Philipps said, "but the current site is landlocked by other businesses, and would require an investment that is not economically feasible."
Employees may receive counseling, severance or help with placement at Yoke's, he said.
Employees were informed of the company's decision Monday.
