Grocery Depot on New Lisbon's west side to close

 

“I’m grateful to the loyal supporters who shopped at the Grocery Depot,” said Roger McGuire Friday afternoon, “but the store will be closing.  All items, except beer, tobacco, and soda, will be sold at a 10-percent discount starting Friday until the inventory is gone.   All of the employees and their families will be impacted by this closing. There are currently eight employees, others have been laid off already and more cuts are expected next week.”    McGuire said he had been encouraged by the City of New Lisbon and the community to build the grocery store on the City’s west side over a year ago, but it turned out they weren’t so excited.  “Too many convenient shoppers,” said McGuire.
