Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor:

I recently saw and spoke with Jim Baldus, owner of Ryan's Foods and Jim's Market Place in Austin. He was in Hayfield helping in the upgrading of different areas of the store. I asked him how the store was doing and was saddened to hear they had dropped off in sales last year. It was his hope in upgrading that sales would pick back up.

I have known Jim for several years and have purchased high quality meat from him since I quit butchering my own beef and have been very satisfied. He is dedicated to his business and service to the public.

I understand many work in Rochester and stop at the "big box stores," but we need to make our store a primary stop for our food and staples.

We miss our hardware store, and if we do not support our hometown grocery store, it will be gone also. You never know the good you have, until it is gone. Hey, you can even park by the front door!

John Steele
