The local Save A Lot Grocery in Brownsville is closing after 25-plus years serving the residents of Edmonson County. The nine employees were all shocked to find out that their job would be done as of Feb. 2. Management told them it was due to lack of sales that they decided to close.
The grocery has been a main landmark in the community and it saddens everyone to see the grocery close. Now, the only full-line grocery will be Cee Bee Food Mart, with the Dollar General and Family Dollar stores having a small line of grocery essentials. Customers will have to travel either to Bowling Green or Leitchfield to shop at Save A Lot.
Rumors are the community is going to get an Ace Hardware store in the building when everything gets settled and done.
