If something doesn't change in the next couple months, Marmaton Market in Moran will close its doors. To prevent this from happening, it's up to the community to get involved and find solutions.

The Marmaton Market in Moran is on hard times. Mark your calendars for Thursday, Sept. 23, at 6 p.m., to attend a meeting to determine its future.

If local buy-in to Moran’s Marmaton Market doesn’t pick up, the store will likely close within the next 30-60 days, predicts manager Marilyn Logan.

“If just half the people in town would come in and spend $20 to $30 a week, that would make the difference in us being able to stay open,” she said Thursday.

In business since 2018, the cooperative grocery store has failed to gain local traction.
