Other Johnnie's Foodmaster Stores Closing, Too

West Somerville will be without a supermarket when Johnnie's closes. Liquidation sales have already begun.

A week after Johnnie's Foodmaster officially announced that its store on Beacon Street would become a Whole Foods, Boston.com has reported the Chelsea-based supermarket chain is closing of all its locations--not just the ones turning into Whole Foods.

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 closing sales begin Nov. 2, Boston.com reports.

The closure includes the one in Somerville, which will leave West Somerville without a supermarket.

In other supermarket-related news, Shaw's and Star Market yesterday announced cuts of 700 jobs across 169 New England stores.
