The new proprietors of a grocery store in Humboldt asked Allen County Commissioners Tuesday if they would be willing to help out with its anticipated utility costs.

Scott and Amy Welch, rural Moran, plan to open Our Hometown Market in the next couple of months. The grocery store replaces Moon’s Hometown Market, and includes a butcher shop.

Amy Welch said, “we have our finances all laid out and are ready to go, but we’d just really appreciate some help from you, too. … We want to make sure that we’re able to sustain the grocery store and not get run over by electrical bills.”
