Sad news out of Boonville. A long time shopping favorite, Great American, is closing.

WKTV reports that local owner Lynn Lockwood announces the family owned grocery store is set to close on June 8th.

Owner Lynn Lockwood said in a statement:

“It is with great regret that we announce the closing of Boonville’s own Great American. This family-owned and operated grocery store has faithfully served the Boonville area for the past 22+ years and is very grateful to its many loyal customers. With the purchase power of the large corporation competitors versus a small independent coupled with the ever-rising costs of pension, healthcare, and New York State minimum wages, we are no longer able to continue operations.” -Lynn Lockwood, Owner, Boonville Great American"

There will also be a 20 percent off sale beginning on May 26th.
