Congratulations Country View Bulk Foods on your new building and location
The new, much larger store, owned by the Martin family, is located at 177 N. Germania Rd. near Snover. It has moved from its old location, which was 4635 Richards Rd.
Owner Clarence Martin runs the store with his son, Marvin, and daughters, Faith, Charity and Sara.
The store supplies a large variety of bulk foods, meats, cheese, produce and groceries.
It also now contains a bakery, which supplies fresh bread, donuts, cinnamon rolls, pies, cookies and other delicious items.
The family opened the original store about 15 years ago in a machine shed on their dairy farm, where they maintain about 80 dairy cows.
“When it first started it was basically to keep family members busy,” Mr. Martin said.
The store originally sold bulk foods, meats and cheeses. As it became more popular throughout the area, produce, baked goods and lines of groceries were added.
The store’s new 100-by- 200 foot building was built by Kolar Brothers construction. The original building was 80-by-40 feet.
Shoppers will find a variety of flours, grains, spices, pasta, candy, dried fruits, meat, cheese, fresh produce, canned goods, cereals and other groceries.
Hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday, and 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Thursday and Friday. Phone number: 989-635-3764.
