Ronnie's Midway Market in Pinedale is shutting down

FRESNO, California

Ronnie's Midway Market has been a part of the community since 1953, but the economy and increasing competition has forced the family owned grocery store to close.

Many customers have been going to the market since they were kids, and say the closure is like a loss of a family member.

David Rodriguez added, "I just don't know what it's going to be like without; a devastating void in the community."

/*Ronnie's Midway Market*/ will shut its doors at the end of the month. Owners say the store has already been sold, but don't know what the new owners plan to do with the space.
