Palm Harbor Sweetbay Closing

The Palm Harbor closing is among several shutdowns scheduled in Pinellas County.

A Palm Harbor Sweetbay Supermarket, at 3400 E. Lake Road, is among 33 under performing stores in Florida scheduled to close in Feburary, the grocer's parent company announced Wednesday.

According to TBO, around 2,000 people will lose their jobs in Florida as a result of the closings. 

"They are simply underperforming stores," said Sweetbay spokeswoman Nicole LeBeau. "Some of them, the leases were coming up, and just based on the sales of the stores they were selected."

The Delhaize Group, which owns Sweetbay, made the announcement Wednesday as it released its 2012 annual report. 

Here is the list of Pinellas County stores:

1861 N Highland Ave., Clearwater

Oh Nooooo. I love that Sweetbay store. The staff is always helpful, the store is clean and the deli dept. has my vote. Also, there are always wheelchairs available to those of us who are handicapped. Hate the Publix across the street. Not friendly personnel and the prices are outrageous. Please let this Sweetbay stay.
