There is still no decision from Kroger as to the future of the Scott's store it operates at 3105 N. Anthony Blvd.
The store was closed May 17 after inspection revealed what the company has called a structural problem. Last week, Kroger said it hoped to decide what to do about the building by the end of this week.
Friday afternoon, Kroger spokesman John Elliott said the company had no update to report on its plans for the site. Because the key decision-makers involved are out of town, he said, he didn't expect any more news on the future of the store in the next few days.
Last month, Kroger said the company has moved all non-perishable food to nearby Kroger or Scott's locations. Some non-perishable food also has been transferred by Kroger or its suppliers, under the supervision of engineering and safety personnel.
The company also said that no Kroger associates in the Fort Wayne region will lose their jobs as a result of the store's being closed – even if that closing turns out to be permanent. For the time being, all the workers from the North Anthony store have been temporarily reassigned to other locations, according to Kroger.
The pharmacy in an adjacent building remains open. It also includes the store's health and beauty and liquor departments.
