Weis Closing Store In Binghamton

This week, news broke that Weis is closing its grocery store in the City of Binghamton.


The store on Conklin Avenue in Binghamton is set to close on around March 2. This will create "another food desert" in Binghamton, the Binghamton Homepage reports.

“The closure of the Conklin Avenue Weis is a blow for many South Side residents, especially those without a car. Just a few months ago, I reached out to Weis management after hearing concerns that stores in Binghamton could close. A district manager assured me the Conklin Avenue store was not in jeopardy of shutting down. That makes last week’s announcement even more frustrating," Binghamton Mayor Jared Kraham stated.

A reason for the closure hasn't been announced but store officials say it was made after "careful consideration."
