United Kingdom-based Tesco announced today it's closing 13 Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market stores - six in metropolitan Phoenix, Arizona; six in metro Las Vegas, Nevada; and one unit in Moreno Valley, in Southern California's Inland Empire region.
Tesco's Fresh & Easy, which is headquartered in the Southern California city of El Segundo, might try to sublease the 13 stores. It will close and board up, which it's calling "mothballing," the 13 grocery markets by November 2, 2010, it says. The retailer said it might re-open some or all of the stores in a few years if conditions warrant.
