By and large, people care more about their cars than they do themselves. That's why Van Wert has such a large recreational eating scene. Health conscious label reading shoppers would consider the Nash Finch brand over anything else available locally.

That was the second surprising business closure I heard of yesterday. The other one was one of my largest vendors. For the latter, I already designed a replacement, but am hoping to encourage them to actually move to Van Wert, instead of closing.
Maybe they can move into the old pick n save building

It's big enough, that's for sure. The key element of their company is their control systems though. In terms of actual manufacturing of machines, the sr4848 is one that anyone with 2 brain cells to rub together and a garage, can use it to build another machine with. Its own programs for manufacturing itself will be available to each of my clients, needing only raw materials to work with. What they need could easily fit into multiple vacant buildings.

I also agree, "affordable healthcare" is making big trouble for businesses everywhere. It's really just another series of taxes. There is a way through it, however.

The prices on name brand items is among the best in town. This includes Walmart. Ever try shopping Walmart without price matching?

They had the absolute best meat anywhere in town. Ever read the ingredient label on a steak at Walmart? Why is there an ingredient label on a steak?
The people of this town will miss Pick 'n Save. They won't realize it at first but as the months go on and they try to buy quality products for their holiday celebration...it is then that they will miss them. Car shows, cookouts and not to mention all that they have done for the community. Hopefully another company will be just as generour with their time and money as they are.

Good luck to the employees of this store. They are great people.

the employees of P & S are the best, they are helpful, friendly, polite and professional

I really do not like shopping the other markets because it seemed like every time I shopped outside the Pick 'n Save box, the employees were ill trained, rude, and down right mean

we are already planning shopping trips to Meijer in Lima, sad

We will be closed at the end of July. I work there and was told. Thank you for the kind words from the majority of you. And BTW...it does have a lot to do with the new insurance coverage due to obama's affordable care act. Yeah right....real affordable for me, huh? Now Im out a job that I have been at for many years.

I agree with Joe, the good ol' SR4848 is my main go-to machine when I want to rub my two brain cells together. It is like R.U.D.I.(Referential Universal Digital Indexer) on the Jetson's. All I do is say "Monkee" (I call mine Monkee), I say "Monkee, make a Durma Laser CNC Table....and then I go to lunch. I come back and "poof", there it is. I was going to ask it to make Paula Deen a new career, but I heard that Oprah is going to hire her and Dennis Rodman for a new cooking show. I think it will be called "Buckwheat Cracker's".

I've actually worked with industrial lasers. They're just a bit on the overkill side when it comes to manufacturing systems. Now, about that bruised male ego of yours...

Sounds fine, but shouldn't they also have someone to add a little masculine touch? After all, Paula is probably more manly than DR!

Well, can we say thank you, Obama? I did not vote for the guy the first time and I sure as heck didn't vote for him the second time. Hate to say it folks but this is just the beginning.

If in fact its closing it's honestly not surprising. Outside of Wal-Mart for anything but meat, Marsh is our store of choice locally for meat. NOBODY can compete price wise with Wal-Mart not even Marsh when it comes to non perishables but we prefer the Meat that Marsh sells. Ruler foods will be lucky to last a year imo. Van Wert is over populated with grocers.

Nobody should shop at Walmart. Sucks that Pick-N-Save is closing but that's just the way of Van Wert. Dying little by little.

I read the above post that talked about the stores involvement in Van Wert. Those are the things that make a difference. I am guessing that there about 50 people working there. I know several of them. I remember when GKN and Teleflex left. We watched them leave and those jobs were gone forever. Have we done all we can as a community to try and keep this store here? Has the mayor or commissioners reached out to the corporate people? Sometimes decisions aren't as concrete as they sound. We will miss this store and the support it provides. We will miss the income tax and the sales tax it generates!

I like Pick n Save...but with the economy wondered how long it could deal with Wally's, Mainstreet, Save a lot, and Ruler foods. I like certain items I can get there but not anywhere else in town. I like the employees there also! Well most of them!

You don't want anybody shopping at Wal-Mart because they caught you stealing from them. You are a typical felon.

Sure, just attack the messenger. Ignore the facts of companies like Walmart. Keep shopping, no thinking, thinking is boring. Keep buying your flags, "Assembled in America" (made in China), your toasters (made in china), clothing,(made in Thailand) and keep wondering why you can't find a job that means something.

Joe, who said the writer was male? Don't you think women have the mental capacity to post on this forum?
