COMMERCE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - The Kroger Co. says it’s buying a longtime grocer’s seven southeastern Michigan locations.

The Cincinnati-based chain announced Friday it’s acquiring Hiller’s Markets and converting all but one into Kroger locations after the deal is completed in July. A Commerce Township store will close.

Terms haven’t been disclosed.

Hiller’s was started about 75 years ago. Company Vice President Justin Hiller tells the Detroit Free Press that it was a financial decision yet still “a sad day for me.”

Hiller’s employees will need to apply for jobs.
