JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Texas-based Brookshire's is closing 2 of its four supermarkets in the metropolitan Jackson area.

Company spokesman Sam Anderson says the stores are located on Ridgewood Road in north Jackson and Terry Road in south Jackson.

Anderson says the stories will close Feb. 11.

He wouldn't say why the stores are closing.

Brookshire's locations in Brandon and Ridgeland will remain open.

Brookshire's bought the four locations from Albertson's grocery stores in May 2002.
