Johnnie's Foodmaster is Closing All 10 Locations
Liquidation sales have already begun.
A week after Johnnie's Foodmaster officially announced that its store in Arlington and five others would become Whole Foods, Boston.com has reported the Chelsea-based supermarket chain is closing all 10 of its locations, including the one in West Somerville just over the Arlington town line at 105 Alewife Brook Parkway.
Boston.com says an Illinois-based company, Hilco Merchant Resources, which specializes in liquidation services, has begun closing sales at all of the Johnnie's Foodmaster markets.
There will be discounts of up to 30 percent, and the closing sales began today, Boston.com reports.
The Whole Foods in Arlington is expected to open in the late summer or early fall of 2013.
