Ukrop’s Super Markets will close the store in Spotsylvania County, company officials said today at a news conference in Richmond. That store is one of two Ukrop’s locations that isn’t included in Giant-Carlisle’s $140 million purchase of Ukrop’s. The store will likely close early next year, and Ukrop’s will help the employees there find jobs at other locations.
