DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - Dubuque’s first community-owned grocery store has closed, less than three years since it opened in a historic area near the city’s downtown.

The Telegraph Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2jqw66I ) the Dubuque Food Co-op announced Monday it was permanently closed, less than two weeks after officials said it was going out of business because of poor sales.

The co-op opened in May 2014 in a 6,000-square-foot space in the Millwork District. It specialized in local and sustainably produced food and other products.

It grew to about 2,100 members and employed 14 people.
