Florissant has one less market in its midst. Alps Supermarket, located on North New Florissant Road, has closed its doors for good.
The locally owned grocery store closed Tuesday after three and a half years in business, property owner Hiren Patel said. He also said that the business was doing OK, but he’s looking at getting another one moved into the property soon. He didn’t disclose if there’s any deals or negotiations currently ongoing.
On Facebook, several local shoppers expressed their sadness of the closing.
“Going to miss ALPS being so close to home,” Sue Kern wrote.
Greg Ulrich wrote, “What a bummer. It was a great place to pick up milk and other items.”
