It's sad to hear that our local Shaw's in Fairhaven is forced to close because it just hasn't been profitable enough in the marketplace. By August 3, Shaw's Fairhaven will shut down along with one in Fall River, Stoughton, Taunton, Westerly and Woonsocket R.I. Details are coming as to employee placement. Spokesman Steve Sylven made the announcement from Shaw's corporate offices in West Bridgewater, MA late Monday.

This area has a slow economy, but still, it's unfortunate to see this happen.
