"We are not forgetting those who have fallen at ['Murder Kroger']," the Facebook page reads. "Lets make it a remembering time."
The Ponce de Leon Avenue grocery store <span id="U07468160001moP">will close Friday to make way for 725 Ponce</span><span id="U13052682836LRG">.</span>
The three organizers are all Georgia State University students.
Rachel Bowen said she and Rowyn Hirsch started the Facebook page in the GSU plaza "more as a joke" and Hailey Stambek, a marketing major, "came on board later."
Bowen's personal connection to the store came from growing up in Atlanta, she said. She reminisced about the first time she went there: She and fellow Atlanta native Hirsch had just left a concert at the Masquerade, and her friend was shocked when she found out Bowen had never been.
"... it feels like we're losing a piece of Atlanta history," Bowen said in a message.
The Facebook page also advertises t-shirts commemorating the grocery store. The shirt is $16.99 on Amazon, but it might not arrive before the vigil. <br/>
8 p.m.-midnight. Oct. 27. Free. Kroger, 725 Ponce de Leon Avenue, Atlanta. facebook.com.<br/>
