Another East Texas Skinner's Corner Store in Lakeport is just announced it’s closing. The grocery store has been a staple in the for 14 years.

Owner Stephen Skinner issued a press release saying, "A special thanks to all of our loyal customers and employees who have supported us over the years."

The business will officially close on August 31st. Many in the community tell us they are sad to see this local business close.

"I frequently come to the store to buy groceries," Chip Williams says. "I hate to see this store closing."

This closure only affects the Lakeport location. In 2001, the family sold their Judson Road location in Longview.
