Mid Valley retailer Coles has announced it will close its doors in August less than a week after Target announced it would leave the centre in June.
Coles confirmed all 57 staff members would keep their jobs, however, did not offer a reason as to why the store would close.
"We are currently undertaking the refurbishment of our Morwell [George Street] store to enhance our offer to local customers and the Mid Valley store will remain open until the refurbishment is complete," a Coles spokeswoman said.
"All 57 team members who work at the Mid Valley store will be able to keep their job at Coles and transfer to a Coles supermarket that's convenient to them."
The Express contacted Mid Valley management, however a spokesperson was unavailable for comment.
The announcement comes after the closure of Morwell-based sawmill Carter Holt Harvey in September and Hazelwood Power Station in March last year.
Originally opened as a Bi-Lo, the store was later rebranded Coles.
