Stop & Shop Supermarket Company, LLC will be closing the store located at 60 Broadway in Malden by Feb. 8, according to a company press statement on Thursday.

The Malden location will shutter on or before 6 p.m. Feb. 8, according to the statement. It's unclear what will be done with the site, which is owned by Chestnut Hill-based W.S. Development, according to Stop & Shop Supermarket spokesperson Judi Palmer in an email to Malden Patch on Thursday.

"We consistently review our stores in each market area," reads the statement. "At this time we feel that we can continue to serve the Malden community with the additional store in Malden as well as stores in the surrounding locations:

540 Squire Road, Revere (approximately 1.4 miles away)

99 Charles St., Malden (approximately 2 miles away)

1690 Revere Beach Parkway, Everett (approximately 2 miles away)

760 Fellsway, Medford (approximately 3.4 miles away)"

As of Thursday, there were 93 associates employed at the store, according to Palmer. 

"We will make the transition for our customers and associates as smooth as possible," reads the statement. "We have notified our associates and will begin alerting customers immediately. All associates currently employed at this store will be offered positions at other stores."

Stop & Shop remains committed to the Malden community and we will continue to support residents as we have at our other location, adds the statement.

The building, which is 52,155 square feet, was formerly a Purity Supreme and was acquired and reopened by Stop & Shop in November 1995, according to Palmer.

I wasn't trying to say kids would be responsible for crime. I was trying to make a point about over-population. Ok, I'm done.

The one time that I shopped there, the store was dead - and at a peak time on a Saturday when people tend to do their shopping. If my one experience was the norm, then it's no wonder that it's now closed. I know it's probably just a pipe dream, but to echo another poster, I'd love to see Trader Joe's, Whole Foods or Market Basket in that space.
