Two Superior grocery stores are closing their doors for the last time Saturday night.

Managers tell Eyewitness News that the Super One Foods stores on Belknap Street, and on East 5th Street are closing ahead of the opening of a larger store on Highway Two at 22nd Avenue East. The store on Oakes Avenue will remain.

Sue Haver, 63, lives less than two blocks from the Belknap store and visits several times each week. "It's kind of like going home. It's a friendly atmosphere. People know you and they'll help you get things down off of the shelves," she said.

To say goodbye, Haver bought three pizzas from Little Caesars, and delivered them to the store. Most people wouldn't even take a moment to bid farewell to a cashier, but Haver described them as if they were family. "It was great. I said goodbye to Shelly, to Josh...I'm going to miss them," she said.

We first told you about $12 million plans to build a new Super One in September of 2012. Community and city leaders broke ground in May of 2013.

The store will open at 6 o'clock Sunday morning, according to a manager.
