As Stop & Shop continues its takeover of King Kullen on Long Island, two more stores are set to be shuttered due to “underperformance.”

King Kullen closed its Mount Sinai store on Thursday, June 20, and is scheduled to close its Lake Ronkonkoma store on Thursday, Aug. 22, and its North Babylon store on Thursday, Sept. 26, a spokesperson for the company said. Employees are being reassigned and no layoffs are planned.

Earlier this year, Stop & Shop announced its plans to buy the King Kullen, including 32 locations, five Wild by Nature organic supermarkets and the King Kullen corporate office in Bethpage.

“King Kullen is a well-respected grocery chain in the Long Island market that has an 88-year tradition of excellent customer service,” Stop & Shop President Mark McGowan said in a statement. “We look forward to bringing our quality, selection, and value to more communities in Nassau and Suffolk counties.”

According to the Smithsonian Institution, King Kullen is recognized as the country’s first “supermarket,” launching the Wild by Nature store banner in 1995.
