Gmart Closes

From the Frederick News-Post:

Store management could not be reached for comment Thursday, but rumors of the store’s closing had been circulating for weeks.

Management kept the news close to its chest and initially told The Frederick News-Post the store was not closing. Some customers said they had heard the same, while others heard it would be reopened under new management.

Richard Griffin, director of economic development for the city of Frederick, said his office heard a few weeks ago the store was undergoing management changes, but nothing about closing.

Retailers are not required to report going out of business, he added.
“It is unfortunate, however. They were only here for a short time,” he said. “We had hoped that they would be a longtime anchor on the Golden Mile.”

The store opened more than a year ago in September.

  1. Not the most surprising. We were in there a month ago and the shelves were fairly empty.

    I always thought the place had a weird smell… not unlike Shoppers when it was across the street.

  2. It started out good – great selection of everything in terms of international foods and fish. A friend went in just a couple of weeks ago for stir fry veggies and said it seemed that they had decided to concentrate on clothing and cell phones more than produce, etc.
