The company said it would post signs at each location and will also have a concierge at the stores to direct customers to the pharmacy areas of the stores.

"While the stores are being cleaned and upgraded, the pharmacies will be operated on a continuous basis,” said Robert Mariano, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Roundy's, in a statement.

As previously reported, Roundy’s plans to take possession of five of the stores in late January and to close them for 30 to 45 days to clean and upgrade them, and it expects to take possession of the other six stores in early March, with similar plans to close and remodel five of those six over a 30- to 45-day period.

The remaining store — in Westchester, a Chicago suburb — will be closed for expansion and reopened later in 2014.
