Iolan pushes for new grocery store



June 18, 2012 - 12:00 AM

Several years have passed since Iola has had a local grocery store to call its own — a loss that has not gone unnoticed by local woman Mary Ross. 

Ross has begun petitioning for reinstatement of a local grocery store. 

She is not alone. Ross, along with Allen County Farm Bureau’s County Coordinator Debbie Bearden and John Ross, Mary’s husband, went to the Rural Grocers Initiative Summit in Manhattan two weeks ago.
