    BRIAN, Nemenz Store To Close

    Nemenz Save-A-Lot Closing

    Save-A-Lot in Poland has been open for four years, but at the end of the day Wednesday, it will close its doors for the final time.

    "The volume has not increased, especially in the past year," said owner Henry Nemenz. "It has kind of declined a little. We're not sure if it was the picketing that caused some of it."

    The picketing Nemenz is talking about involved United Food and Commercial Worker Local 880 members. They set up informational pickets about a year ago.

    "The purpose of the pickets is to truthfully advise the public that the Nemenz stores being picketed, and indeed all Nemenz grocery stores are non-union stores and anti-union stores," said Tom Roberston President of local 880. "Local 880 does not want to see any grocery store close. Local 880 wants to see all grocery employers treat their employees fairly by providing them with jobs that pay living wages and benefits."

    This isn't the first time that the UFCW has set up in front of a Nemenz store. Just last year in Hubbard, Henry Nemenz closed an IGA that was being picketed.

    Customers in Poland said that union or non-union, they're just upset there is one less choice for grocery shopping.

    "I'll miss it, because I shop at both stores. It's a shame," said June Young, who lives in Poland

    All 25 workers in Poland will be transferred to other Nemenz stores
