Belle Foods has filed for bankruptcy and announced that it will close two stores in the Tennessee Valley. The locations affected are Decatur's Sixth Avenue store and the one on Florence Boulevard in the Shoals.

The Birmingham-based company is struggling to pay off debt. Belle Foods has 57 locations throughout the Southeast. The company used to run Bruno's and Food World stores.

In April, company officials said they planned to hire 300 part time workers at its stores in Alabama, Georgia, Florida and Mississippi. No word on whether those plans have been canceled.
