Market delivers when it counts

I just wanted folks to know that our local Prairie Center Red Apple grocer went above and beyond during our last week’s snow storm. It’s always a pleasure to shop there. Last week, my Suburu was in the shop for repair when the storm hit. We were snowed in tight. My husband tried to get to the store in our little Escort and ended up in the ditch and the tow truck was unable to pull us out saying our roads were unsafe so we were really stuck for the duration and running out of groceries.

We called Prairie Center to get some advice or information on what folks were doing about getting groceries and what a surprise we got. They said to give them a list of what we needed, which we did, and they risked bringing those groceries to our home. In fact, they delivered twice for us.

I want to say a big thank you and let our little community know what character we have in our local grocer.
