The Sunday front-page story claiming that Clinton has no local grocery store was totally false. Clinton Foods IGA has served my family well for 28 years, providing our daily grocery needs as well as items for special occasions. The reporter on this story obviously didn’t come to Clinton to check the facts, as Clinton Foods is one of the first businesses encountered as you enter our village on Highway 140. The “correction” to this story was buried on Page 4A of Wednesday’s paper and continued the false information by stating Clinton Foods “provides some grocery items.”

I guess “some” must include produce, canned and dry goods, convenience foods, frozen foods, meats, dairy, snack foods, deli, bakery, cleaning products, personal-care items, liquor department and more. There are many Clinton residents who shop at Clinton Foods because they want to support local family owned businesses, prefer the convenience of not driving out of town or do not have transportation. We’re blessed to have Clinton Foods in our town!
