Brandon and Steinbach are also set to lose Safeway stores, and the Thompson Cash and Carry will close July 18.

According to a release, Sobeys has determined that "consistently underperforming retail stores representing approximately 50 stores…will close. Approximately 60 per cent of the affected stores are located in Western Canada."

Last fall, the Competition Bureau ordered Sobeys to sell 23 of its Canadian Safeway stores, including five Winnipeg stores.

No timeline was given for the latest closures.
