Nearly 100 people will be out of work when a local grocery store closes its doors later this year.
Conrads Sentry Foods said 96 employees will lose their jobs when the store closes this fall.
In a letter addressed to Mayor John Murray, Conrads Sentry president Penny Pederson said the company expects to begin eliminating positions on Sept. 10.
The layoffs will continue in phases until the store's closing about four weeks later, Pederson wrote.
According to the letter, none of the store employees are in a union. Five of the employees losing their jobs are salaried positions and the remainder are hourly, Pederson said.
In a statement, the Department of Workforce Development said it will work with the business and employees with assistance in the transition.
Conrads Sentry is at 1052 W. Main St. in Sun Prairie.
