County Market Reopens with new additions

Posted: Updated:

GIRARD – The County Market in Girard was rebuilt after a fire last year and reopens with new additions.

A fire last May destroyed the only grocery store for miles in the area for residents. A Grand Reopening last week saw hundreds of people turn out to welcome back the needed store.

Store Manager Joshua Powell says, "The Café is the main feature that I am excited about, you can actually go and sit down and have that meal. Something we did not have before in the old building."

He credits Niemann Foods CEO Rich Niemann for not hesitating to rebuild and help employees move to other locations while the rebuilding went on. The new Count Market is larger with 28-thousand square feet and includes and expanded produce area with more organic options along with a salad bar, deli, bakery department, and meat counter with Ranchers Legend beef. 

An all you can eat breakfast will be served on weekends along with Full Rack Fridays featuring a full rack of ribs for $9.99.

The new store employees 70 people.
