Town laments over closed grocery store

"Everything we had downtown is going to come here," Mark said. "If somebody wanted to do their regular shopping here, they would be able to."

Lincoln-Spooner said expanding the Country Store would help fill the void left by the loss of the IGA, also noting the presence of Village Meat Market as a source for food items in Willsboro.

The McKennas expressed concern for senior citizens within the town, which made up much of their customer base and may find it hard to shop out of town. In response, they are instituting a grocery delivery program similar to the one they had at the IGA.

"We've always done it, and we will continue to do it," he said.
