Atlanta, GA, March 27, 2020: Patel Brothers, the nation-wide Indian-American grocery store chain, will be closing all its locations effective Monday, March 30 and hopes to reopen within ten days.
“After careful consideration, and with the safety of the community being paramount, we have decided to close all of our locations effective Monday, March 30th and hope to reopen within 10 days,” a statement released by Patel Brothers said. “We believe that this is an important step to help flatten the curve, and especially important to protect our communities. We wish to protect our staff and our customers, as well as the first responders and medical professionals who are working tirelessly to save us.”
