OXFORD – For over half a century, a grocery market has been a mainstay in the Village of Oxford; however by the middle of next month, shoppers looking for a full-service grocer will have to go out of town.
The Oxford Great American will close Aug. 11. The property has already been conveyed to a private investor. The business that purchased the property leases properties to Dollar General discount stores. The building, which has been suffering from slow decay, is expected to receive a full renovation.
“I can’t speak for other people, but I was notified that the two properties making up the grounds around, and the building itself, have already been sold and a new business is already preparing to open up in its place,” said Oxford Village Mayor Terry M. Stark.
