WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — City Leaders in West Lafayette are trying to move forward with making sure there's a grocery store on campus.

As News 18 previously reported, Fresh City Market is expected to close Jan. 20.

At a meeting Monday night, Councilman Nick DeBoer brought up the issue. He's concerned students without cars won't have easy access to groceries.

Director of Development Erik Carlson shares that same concern. He's said he's reached out to Fresh City Market's parent company but has yet to hear back. He said there are still seven years left on the lease.

"We are willing, wanting to work with them, not only on trying to keep them from closing, but now that their space is going to be coming up for sublease, we would like to work with them on that, but still have had no luck in talking with them," said Carlson.

News 18 has also reached out to the company throughout the past few weeks. Our calls have not been returned.
