Lowes Foods

— Lowes Foods announced Tuesday that it would close four stores across the state, including a Cary store. The grocer has two other Cary stores which will be unaffected by the change.

The stores, which the announcement describes as "under-performing," will be closed by Sept. 19 and staff offered positions at other stores in the chain where possible, Lowes said.

The stores going out of business are:

3480 Kildaire Farm Road in Cary

247 Mount Jefferson Park Road in West Jefferson

1145 E. Marion St. in Shelby

401 Cox Road in Gastonia.
