People in a Regina neighbourhood will have to travel a bit further for groceries, following the closure of the Lakeshore Sobeys.

The store closes Wednesday, after six years under the Sobeys banner.

It served a community that included many apartment complexes and a retirement home, the Bentley.

Bentley resident Jerry Deshaye told CBC News Tuesday that trips to the store were a welcome activity for people in the building.

"It's something that's not part of the Bentley but is within the Bentley sphere of things going on," Deshaye said.

He added that the proximity of the store allowed for many seniors to get their own groceries because it was within easy walking distance.

CBC News did not get a response from Sobeys about the reason behind closing the Lakeshore store.
