Country Discount Grocery celebrates grand opening

The recently opened Country Discount Store is already improving services for the growing number of loyal customers. Owners Patricia Quillen and Vicki Wandrey are excited to let the public know they now have a cooler, making perishable items available in their store. Milk, eggs, cheese, butter, and cottage cheese are some of the dairy products they will be stocking.

Quillen told the Argus that the store, celebrating its grand opening, is unique because the discounted foods are priced "well below" normal prices.

The store opened Memorial Day weekend and has kept the owners busy. Stock comes from other grocer's rotated stock or from stores who have gone out of business. It comes in boxes of mixed items, Quillen said, so you never know what you are going to receive. The stock room is piled high with boxes they have sorted and labeled. Merchandise may be dented or even past the expiration date, but the food sealed inside is still good.

If anyone should purchase something that is not good, they are encouraged to return it. Quillen said, "everything is guaranteed 100 percent." They want to be made aware of any item that may be unsatisfactory so they can pull any like items from the shelves. To date, "only four candy bars and one can of condensed milk have been returned," Quillen added.

First time customers, Kevin and Jocelyn Thiemer of Wild Rose said "the prices are great." Kevin continued. "we'll be back."

Future plans include doubling the size of the building, allowing double the warehouse size as well and improving the racking system.
The store hours are: Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Monday thru Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The store is located at W9483 Highway 21. three miles west of Wautoma.
