Geneva City Councilor Offers Idea to Replace Closing Family Dollar


With the Family Dollar store on Exchange Street in Geneva closing, Ward Five Councilor Jim Petropoulos offered an idea of what should take its place.

“I would like to see, and others I’ve spoken to would like to see a small Independent Grocer, like Big M in Ovid or the old Madia’s, take its place, ” said Petropoulos. “Why? That would help solve the food desert problem I hear about all the time.”

Petropoulos says he has talked to the Local Development Corporation about the grocery store idea and told City Councilors at last week’s meeting he plans to follow up with them.
