Last year, the town of Hubbard pulled together to help itself. A group of local investors and donations from individuals kept he community’s only grocery store open when it was threatened with closure. One year later, the doors are still open, and the store is still serving the community.
Last year wasn’t the first time the town had come together to save its grocery store. Twenty years ago this month, after a natural gas explosion leveled a portion of downtown – including the grocery store – the community’s economic development commission was formed to guarantee that a grocery store would return.
