Scolari’s to close California stores
April 13, 2012
On Thursday after lunch, managers informed employees at the San Luis Obispo, Paso Robles, Pismo Beach and Santa Barbara stores that the supermarket chain was shutting down its California supermarkets to focus on the 14 stores it has in Northern Nevada.
Estimates are that between 150 to 200 people will lose their jobs.
Joe Scolari sold three of the supermarket chain’s four locations to NKT Commercial, which is owned by Nick Tompkins. The Scolari family had been renting the Pismo Beach location.
