The 6th Street Market, the new grocery store in Morrisonville, is prepared to be a major part of the community when it opens tentatively in the middle of January. The Langen's, Larry and Susan, along with brother John, are bringing a grocery store back to Morrisonville after a 2 year absence. That feat, in itself, is seldom seen in small communities these days. But it doesn't stop with being a grocery store. The Langen's, along with store manager Diane Kane, have plans to make the store a full service business for the communities they will serve. Some of the services planned for the 6th Street Market include, home delivery, small event catering, daily breakfasts and lunches and a gathering place for small meetings as well as a safe place for kids between school and after school events.
The store will be a full line store carrying perishables, non-perishables, produce and highlighting a fresh cut meat department where Todd Bailey will custom cut meat to your specifications as well as offering meat bundles. The store is progressing quickly towards completion and the owners are proud to have used local labor for most of the work done. They plan to employ 10 to 20 people once they are fully operational.
