I really wish someone would open up a meat shop here in town. Walmarts meat sucks and i want good quality meat at a reasonable rate. Selling in bulk would be a good idea as well. Fresh produce???? Great idea! Walmarts sucks but you know what other choice do i have? I don't really care for save a lots either. Good wholesome american produce is what i would like to see! I would be proud to be a customer!

I agree w/ the poster who said to start small and slowly build it up. Def check out your competition that people in town are driving to. You also have to have at least 1 item that is sensational. For instance, start w/ a great Italian Beef sandwich or a very good soup in the winter. Something that people will crave b/c it is so good. Good luck if you follow through w/ the idea.

Italian Beef,BBQ Pulled Pork, Philly Cheese Steaks, Pita Gyros, Schnitzel Sandwich. Good Chilli with the works. If I won the big lottery I would have one or more places selling this stuff. I would bake my own bread and rolls too.Find a bunch of retired military cooks to run it and let it roll. Try to get as much of the produce locally as possible. I would serve REAL breakfast too.

A few friends of mine were discussing what it would take to bring a store back to the IGA building on Bailey Lane. Ultimately, we thought there would be a pretty good customer-base from the Ewing, East-Benton, Thompsonville, Aiken areas that might support a small local-grocer. I think where we left it, though, was that overhead would be REALLY high and it probably wouldn't work out. Personally, I don't care for save-a-lot, but that's only because I like certain brands and prefer to get my shopping done at one place; so I don't go. I can say that I would for-sure shop somewhere that had good brands and good meat, though.

I really liked having a grocery store in that part of town (north) and miss the old IGA very much

what about the old dyels store? I sure do miss that store. Live right down the street and wish they would put a grocery store there slash. deli. I do not like walmarts meat at all and would patronize a store there.I do not like to go all the way to walmarts all the time and save alots does not carry alot of things that I like.Great Idea
