If there is a Sobey's grocery store in your neighbourhood, it might not be there much longer.

The parent corporation, Empire Company, has just announced that it will close about 50 Sobey's stores across Canada.  

60 percent of those stores are in Western Canada.   

Empire does not specifically say how many jobs will be lost but it has set aside $137 million for severance, site closing, and other costs.

Sobey's purchased Safeway stores recently for $5.8-billion and made it clear it would find 'synergies.'
