DEARBORN, Mich (FOX 2) – Many people have been hurt in Dearborn today as many have gathered for a vigil for a Kroger shop, yes you hear it right, a Kroger shop.
They overrun Kroger cards and put candles out of the store on Michigan Ave while shutting doors for a good Saturday afternoon.
The decision to close it is being met by the protests of loyal consumers.
Some decided to stay and the idea quickly spread, with about 100 people attending.
"This is a community celebration that is what the Kroger community means, the diversity, the fellowship and the respect that the community has for years of dedication we have given to our buyers, this is a celebration of our great partners and the good customers we serve every single day, "said Kroger Corporate Affairs Manager Rachel Hurst said.
The store has a special place in the heart of the community. When distressed buyers look down the street they see another Kroger store.
That is a big factor in why the store is closed in the first place.
Kroger officials say that the employees were laid out offered jobs in other stores in the area.
