MENTONE — The town of Mentone welcomed a new grocery store on Friday, March 1, as Raber’s Kountry Store, LLC held a ribbon cutting to commemorate its grand opening at 105 S. Morgan St., Mentone, south of the town’s storied concrete egg.
“This has a huge impact for the town,” said Rita Price, representing the town’s chamber of commerce. “We needed a grocery store anyway. And to get this, this is a bonus. They have discount groceries, they have frozen food, they have produce, they have bulk items, they have everything.”
The store is open Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. The store is closed on Sunday.
According to Amy Raber, the store began doing business on Tuesday, Feb. 26.
The location was formerly the site of a Dollar General.
