The Burlington Cost Cutter grocery store will be closing at the end of the month.
The Skagit County store, originally built in 1989, would have required a significant reinvestment to meet the company’s new strategy, according to a press release from The Markets LLC, the parent company of the store and based in Bellingham. The Burlington store currently has 43 employees.
“The Markets continually reviews and realigns its real estate assets. The company will coordinate its resources around its other stores that have greater potential for long-term growth,” the company said in press release.
After the closure of the Burlington store, The Markets will have 20 stores in Washington.
