Creative Economy Week Kicks Off

Gordy's Markets continue to close in the Chippewa Valley

News today is that the Gordy's on Hamilton Avenue in Eau Claire is closing at 5 PM today. This was announced, as have been a few others, by a sign on the door the day of the closing. This leaves just one Gordy's in Eau Claire (on West Clairemont, the one that is near the Menards) that remains open. One is left in Chippewa Falls as well.  Several of the other stores are being taken over by Festival Foods.
