The news is devastating for the hundreds of VG's employees in Burton and Flint Township that will lose their jobs, but the reality is that both stores will be closing soon.

ABC12 obtained a letter from VG's parent company, 'Spartan Stores' stating that the Burton, and Macomb county stores would be closing December 28th.

The Flint Township store closing story was leaked by employees of the store, but has not been confirmed through Spartan Stores.

With all the competition in the area from big box corporate stores, are you surprised by the closings?
