Two Gwinnett Ingles grocery stores closing for good after today

Today’s your last chance to shop at two Lawrenceville Ingles locations.

The grocery stores at 1154 Lawrenceville Highway and 1050 Grayson Highway are set to shut their doors for good after 7 p.m. April 26, according to managers at both stores. Employees at both stores have been offered jobs at nearby locations, chief financial officer Ron Freeman said.

“This was an unpleasant business decision we had to make,” Freeman said in an email.
