The store on Olive near Meadows will close June first and re-open as a FoodMaxx in July. That's when the store on Main Street near R will permanently shut down.

Some employees tell Action News -- they're hoping to be transferred to other stores or be hired at the new FoodMaxx. But others are worried they'll be left without a job.

Save Mart officials say the company is working with union representatives to help the employees through the changes.

Two Save Marts in Fresno have closed in the past two years, along with one each in Clovis, Tulare, Kerman and Sanger.
