PADTHAWAY lost its deli earlier this year and now another business in town is closing its doors.
Elders will cease trading at the end of September with its services consolidated into the Naracoorte and Keith branches.
After opening in 2005, the store was used primarily as a fertiliser depot while also selling rural merchandise.
Elders Australia group general manager David Goodfellow said the impact on the Padthaway region would "not be enormous".
"Instead of losing money from the Padthaway branch, Elders decided to invest it into Naracoorte and Keith.
"Naracoorte is a very strong branch. We currently employ 19 people in Naracoorte and 17 in Keith.
"The manager we had at Padthaway will move to Naracoorte and the other two staff were only employed casually."
The closure is part of Elders' future plans to simplify its services, decentralise farm supplies, decentralise management and close struggling branches.
Mr Goodfellow said across the country there would be 150 redundancies - most at a middle management or head office level.
"The impact on branch networks is actually quite minimal," he said.
"Ten branches will close but it is really just rationalising the business. Most of those only had one or two staff anyway."
