New Braunfels Chamber responds to closure of local Kroger store
By GARY P. CARROLL News Editor
With the news that Kroger Food Stores are pulling out of the San Antonio area, including New Braunfels, Chamber of Commerce Executive Vice President Michael Meek said continued efforts to attract new industry to tire area must be maintained.
Meek said that the loss of approximately IOO jobs from the local Kroger store, coupled with the projected closing of the West Point Pepperell Iselin Plant and the loss of its 300 employees, will have a definite and direct eco nomic impact on New Braunfels which has enjoyed one of the lowest unemployment rates in the state thus far in 1993.
“I’ve heard there’s an average of
110 employees at each (Kroger) store, which would put them in the top 25 employers in the county,” Meek said. “Anytime an employer that size shuts down, it takes a tremendous amount of payroll dollars out of the community and keeps them from rolling over.”
Meek said closures such as the Iselin plant and Kroger are the reason the chamber works hard to stimulate economic development and industrial growth in the area, and equated the job with attempting to fill a bucket with water when there is a hole in the bucket.
Meek said it is important for those involved with economic development to continuously look for ways to attract new industry in order to maintain current levels of employment.
“If we had no industrial development program in the community things would not stay the same — they would go backwards,” Meek said. “We hate to see the Kroger employees unemployed, as well as the Iselin plant workers, and we hate to lose the dollars. That’s why we must be vigilant in attracting new industry and maintaining steady growth to keep the tax rate where it is and maintain our way of life."
Meek said currently the chamber has no pending deals and most recently lost an Indiana-based company to the Dallas area, but efforts to continue to attract business is an on-going one. He said at any given time the chamber has 30- to- 40 “suspects” on their list to pitch New Braunfels to.
