After four years without a grocery store in town, Pilot Grove has added a new multifaceted market for the community.
Twenty three investors including Laurie Beach formed a group called Pilot Grove Community Betterment. Beach contributed the land to owners Cody and Paula Tyler for the new store.
“It’s kind of like giving to your church or your cemetery,” Beach said. “You don’t really give because you want a big showing. You give because you want to keep it there and you know it’s there for you to use.”
