You can expect to see Harvest Foods doing business on Salem Road for about another month, but they are in negotiations for what might happen after that. Some of the owning partners have decided to retire, according to staff, and there are other grocery chains that are interested in buying this location. Sunday, August 19th, 2018, will be the last day for the store to do business as Harvest Foods. Some possible buyers are Edwards Food Giant, which owns seven stores in central and northeast Arkansas, and City Market, which owns six stores throughout Arkansas. It’s difficult to say whether the more than 20 employees will keep their jobs. It depends on the buyer, among other things. We’ll add to this store when there’s more to report.
