The rumor of Copps on S. Park Street closing has been swirling around since last year. This year the rumor was at a fever pitch, and I was told by several people including some elected officials that the Copps grocery store was closing. In the last few days I have had communications with upper management at Roundy's headquarters regarding the Copps grocery store on South Park Street. I was informed the current lease which will end in 5 years (approx. 2020). Although, the Park Street store is small compared to others in the Madison area, Roundy's is committed to being part of the South Madison community.
