The Tom Thumb grocery store in the WestBend development will be closing in September, the second time a grocery store at that location has shut its doors.
The store closing will affect 61 employees, according to a letter sent by Tom Thumb’s parent company, Albertson’s, to the Texas Workforce Commission on July 27.
Less than a year since it opened, the Tom Thumb in the WestBend shopping center near University Drive will close in September. The store closing will affect 61 employees, the grocery store chain told the Texas Workforce Commission on Monday.
“While we anticipate being able to transfer virtually all store employees to another of our other Albertsons or Tom Thumb Fort Worth locations including stores which are less than 5 miles away there will potentially be some displaced employees,” company officials said in its letter to the Texas Workforce Commission.
Another Tom Thumb, an “urban concept version,” opened in the Left Bank development just a few miles away from the WestBend location just a few months ago.
