DUTCHLAND FOODS GROCERY IN MARION, NY - IS OPEN !!!!!!!
If you build it, they will come. Well it was built and they did come. I don't think the owners had any idea that they would get the crowd they did so fast. When I got there, I asked if I could take pictures and Mr. Zimmerman said I could as long as I didn't take pictures of his employees and I didn't. This is just a general run through of the store. I have over 160 pictures, which I will show some now and again. Dutchland is like a small Sauder's. You will note there are spaces on many of the shelves, but that is do to the amount people are buying. When anyone asked him for something the reply was the trucks will be here Monday. They are open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday 9 to 6, Friday 9 - 8 and on Saturday 9 to 4. They are not open on Monday because that is the day the trucks come in and it gives them time to reload the shelves. In the second picture you note some flowers and pumpkins to the right - that was loaded up on Monday, but they are low now. I believe these hours will be made longer when he gets going and can afford more employees. I also, don't think, he thought of the apartment complex that is down the side street from the store. That will bring in business, too. If you wish to come and I encourage you, I would suggest Tuesday or Wednesday, if you could. I went on Saturday. It is a great store, in a very needed location and I hope it is a great success.
NOTE: I CHANGED THE HOURS ABOVE. TODAY I FOUND THEIR AD IN A LOCAL PAPER WITH THE NEW HOURS IN IT, SO I THOUGHT I BETTER CHANGE THEM ON HERE. THEY ARE AT: 3948 N. MAIN STREET, MARION, NY FORMERLY WHERE THE MARION SHURFINE USE TO BE.
