The Crown Hill QFC, which has been slated for closure, now has a final date. The store will permanently close on October 17th at 6 p.m., according to Kristin Maas with QFC.
Maas tells us that the store is holding a close-out sale with 30 percent off grocery items and 40 percent off natural foods and health & beauty care items. The discounts don’t apply to books, magazines, alcohol, tobacco, pharmacy, gift cards and other items prohibited by law. Starting today the Crown Hill store will not be honoring the weekly print ad, she says, and is redirecting shoppers to use the Holman Road QFC (9999 Holman Road N.W.) Also starting today, the Crown Hill QFC will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. instead of 24 hours a day. Approximately 40 employees are being offered positions at other QFC stores. The new QFC store that is under construction on 24th Ave NW is slated to open mid-December, Maas tells us, but a firm date has not been set.
