We are a locally owned second generation grocery store in the heart of
Rochester Washington.
This family business was started in 1978 with Dick Bailey at the head of the train.
In 2007 Dick along with LaVonne Bailey decided they would retire.
The business was then purchased by us, Bryan & Tammy Bailey.
We are very proud to carry on the family name and business.
We greatly appreciate our community and all their support.
