According to Patch the store employs 61 people and has to close no later than September 1st this year.

The silver lining here is that the 61 employees of the Kings Grocery Store closing in Chatham have the opportunity to be transferred to other King's Stores in the area.

Patch reports there are currently 15 King's Grocery Stores in Jersey and hopefully they won't be facing the same fate as the Chatham location any time in the near future.

Here are all the stores we've lost over the past few years that we miss dearly.
