Yes, the rumors are true...mostly.

There is sad news in town that BiLo is closing. BiLo is the only grocery store in Grove City borough. They've been around for a very long time. Lots of good stuff there, but still has a small-store feel. They deliver food to shut-ins all over the community.

BiLo has signs in their windows stating that they are open "Wed-Fri: 8-6." This, of course, implies they are closing Friday evening. However, a BiLo manager has told me that they are posting hours for employees through next week. The situation remains fluid, of course, so stay tuned.

Please keep in mind the 29 employees who face a very uncertain future. They were informed of the situation on Tuesday.

There is another semi-local company that is interested in buying out the Knouse family. This company has multiple stores in the area. Let's hope that the deal works out. It would be a shame to see so many people lose their jobs and to not have a grocery store in the borough.
