Two of the Bay Area's newest grocery stores will shut their doors for good Thursday.

The Fresh and Easy markets in West San Jose and San Francisco's Bayview District will close Thursday afternoon.

The chain was sold earlier this month. Everything on the shelf is being sold at half-off to get rid of inventory.

Workers found out they were losing their jobs during a conference call last week.

Seventeen other Fresh and Easy stores in the Bay Area will remain open, for now.
