Multiple grocery stores across Arizona are locking their doors for good in July.

Safeway is closing two locations in the Valley in hopes of strengthening operational efficiencies. The grocer is working on transferring employees to other locations before the end of next month.

The affected locations are 3131 E. Thunderbird Road in Phoenix and 5860 W. Thunderbird Road in Glendale.

Albertsons, which is owned by the same company as Safeway, will be closing one of its Tucson location. A company spokesperson said similarly to the Safeway closures, the move was difficult but will help their operational goals.  

The Albertsons location slated to close later this month is 6363 E. 22nd Street in Tucson.
