Martin’s Super Market is closing one of its South Bend stores.

The store at 1302 Elwood Street on the city’s northwest side will close at about the same time as when the Portage Avenue bridge closes. However, the location will be re-opened in an “alternate grocery format” in the future.

In addition to the bridge closure, the company says the area’s declining population and market competition “have made the cost of operating this location increasingly unprofitable and, therefore, unrealistic.”

All employees at the store will be offered positions at other stores.

The location has been moved multiple times since it opened in 1947.
