DAYTON, Ohio — United Dairy Farmers has closed and sold five Dayton, Ohio-area convenience stores, according to a report in the Dayton Daily News.
“These store closures resulted from our regular process of strategic real-estate review,” UDF spokeswoman Tamara Krueger told the newspaper. All affected employees “were offered continued employment at UDF,” Krueger said.
The five stores tentatively are operating under the name Dayton Dairy Farm, or DDF, a spokesman for the new ownership said.
The sale was finalized is August, and the stores reopened under new ownership within two days.
The transition affected two stores in Kettering, Ohio, and three sites in Dayton.
Meanwhile, Cincinnati-based United Dairy Farmers said it plans to build two new convenience stores/fuel stations in Ohio’s Washington Township, one on the township’s northern edge and one on its southern edge, according to the newspaper. Timing for the construction was not known.
