Westchase Area Sweetbays Closing

The closings will take place in February.

Several local Sweetbay Supermarkets are among 33 under-performing stores in Florida scheduled to close in February, the grocer's parent company announced Wednesday.

The stores are at:

  • 10617 Sheldon Road, Tampa
  • 4519 Gunn Highway, Tampa

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. 

Other stores in the region closing are:

  • 5320 Ehrlich Road, Tampa
  • 17605 Bruce B. Downs Blvd., Tampa
  • 2333 W Hillsborough Ave, Tampa
