Vowell’s Fresh Market on Bear Creek Road announced their plan to close permanently July 18. A sign was placed on the door that thanked their shoppers for their support over the years.

Many shoppers were surprised by the announcement.

“I’ve been shopping here for a lifetime,” said Tia Jones. “I come here for my mom, I come here for myself, family members. It’s sad, I really like this store, I really wanna, ya know, I wish it were open a little longer.”

Jayla Murphy said she’s not surprised by the closure but thought the store had a few more years in it.

“I mean, I was surprised like just hearing it, but thought it would be another like five years before they closed,” said Murphy. “You know you’re gonna get a deal coming here.”

The Vowell’s location at 4440 University Blvd. E. will remain open.
