Prices were too "High"!
Local people allowed this to happen!
If someone had bought this Market(Local)family, they
could have did some "price" cutting for their community!
Go get a Sam's Club card save yourself some bucks!
Don't shop local! Prices are way too high!

The last time I shopped there - in August - all the items I purchased were out of code. We discovered the baby food was ONE YEAR out of code.
Bad, bad management!

Did you take the baby food back.
I don't really even trust some place that give people free food.
Like the one in Rockfalls.and the other place is pantry in Dixon as you are going the back way to nelson it gives everything but what is healthy for you.I use to live in Forreston.The guy who owns the hardware store is a jerk.And the lady that works at the library is a pain too.and the guy that owns the car store is no better.because he told the hardware guy our address that wasn't his place to do that.i would move out of that dead town.
