Huntington Southern States store closes

By The Associated Press

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Farmers in the Huntington area will have to travel to other cities to buy supplies.

Members of the Huntington Southern States Cooperative voted this week to close the store due to declining sales and revenue.

Southern States corporate representatives had recommended the store’s closure last year.

Southern States district manager Jim Briedwell tells WSAZ-TV that the store didn’t adjust to the area’s changing demographics, industry and economy.

Some employees will be relocated to other Southern States stores in West Virginia, Kentucky and Ohio.
