Our View: Thumbs up, thumbs down: Grocery store to add to Genoa
Thumbs up to a local grocery store for Genoa again. Six months after the city lost both its supermarket and its Mexican grocery – the only two grocery stores it had – Piggly Wiggly announced it will open in the former Brown’s County Market building. A grocery store is a big deal for a small city – in addition to offering residents convenience, it brings jobs and sales tax revenue. Piggly Wiggly says it is bringing 70 jobs when it opens in May, and it is not receiving any of the tax breaks Brown’s received when it first opened in Genoa.
