Our store has only been open for about 2years!! I luv the store but there is never really for than a had full of people in the store or in the lot as a whole. I think it was in the wrong location to receive alot of shoppers. The had the best prices on meats and a good coupon policy. I will miss them but not the extra mile it took me to get there.
