Changing face of the local grocery

The front of Jones’ Food Center on Main Street Elk Point has undergone a major transformation this week. Workers removed all of the entry and facade in preparation to rebuilding the entire front. Store Manager Joe Hall said the foyer will be about eight feet wider and give customers a straight shot into the store. The exterior will be painted a rich gray and new windows installed. As of Tuesday, customers had to enter the store from the alley, but Hall said the front doors will be open soon, hopefully by the end of the week.
