“The town meeting will be critical to guiding our future efforts to find a store operator,” declared John Leezer, member of an investment group that owns the Toulon grocery store building. “If people want a store and will support it, I am confident we can find an operator.”
A town meeting on the store is scheduled for Wednesday, August 26 at the News Room Bistro at 7 p.m.
Local investors in Stark County Ventures met Thursday to discuss the future of the grocery store, which closed several weeks ago.
Investors heard that the store needs to gross about $1500 a day on average to make it. That works out to 100 customers ringing up $15 each, or 50 customers at $30 a day.
Toulon has 500-plus households, and grocery store customers also came from outside the city.
If you are interested in seeing a grocery store in Toulon, please attend the meeting this Wednesday at 7 at the News Room Bistro.
