When it comes to food, Spain’s La Petite grocery store is the country’s second largest.
The store has been open since the 1990s, and its locations are mostly in the cities of Granada, Valencia and Barcelona.
But La Petit is now closing down, and the chain will focus on expanding its business in other markets in the future.
The chain has been closed since June 2017.
La Petites parent company Cargill said in March it would take over the chain and is planning to start new stores in the coming months.
“We are happy that we can start new ventures that will further our plans for growth and development of our business,” Cargills head of global brands, Simon Pritchard, said at the time.
LaPetites parent Cargil said that the chain’s “business model has proven successful” and the business will continue to expand.
The Spanish grocery chain has more than 5,000 outlets across the country, with a total of 4,400 stores in Spain, Spain, Portugal, Italy, France, the UK and Canada.
The stores in Granada will be closed from January 2019.
The closure of the chain means that customers can expect to find some very limited items in stores, including some products from the brand’s flagship supermarket chain, Aldi.
Aldi spokesperson in Granadines, Carlos Marcelo, told the BBC that it is “deeply sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused”.
“We apologise for the inconvenience caused and our employees are working with our customers to ensure that this does not happen again,” he said.
