Since reopening, Arliss Spillane, manager of Michigan Hometown Foods said the store has been doing well and is close to breaking even on the business venture.

"The community's always been beyond supportive and awesome, and I think they're glad to have it back and have it open," said Spillane.

Spillane said the small town grocer is unusual as it cuts its own meat and makes its own meat products and various grocery items that are popular in the community.
