Two Catawba County Lowes Foods stores will close next month, according to a Monday press release from the company.

The Hickory store located at 1405 29th Avenue NE and the Claremont store at 3035 Centennial Blvd will close in early August, the press release stated.

According to the company, the current employees at these stores will have the opportunity to work at other Lowes Foods stores in the area.

“If this is geographically impractical, we will provide financial assistance to help them,” the release states.

The Lowes Foods at 970 Cipriana Drive in Myrtle Beach will also close early next month.

The 29th Avenue NE Lowes Foods is one of three Lowes Foods in within a short distance of each other. This store is roughly 3 miles from a Lowes Foods on 14th Avenue NE and 1.7 miles from the Lowes Foods on N. Center Street.
