SAN RAFAEL, Calif. -- Bay Area Foods, the successor company to Provigo Corp. here, said last week it will close three Cost Less Foods warehouse stores by mid-March. Three other warehouse stores -- two Cost Less Foods and one Better Buy -- will remain in operation while the company evaluates their future, a company spokesman told SN. The company said it is re-evaluating all its formats at this time.
company is committed to growing its businesses and providing customers with quality foods at competitive prices. "However, the large floor-plans and low-margin product approach that comprised the Cost Less Foods store formats did not meet customer expectations," he said.
