  1. That’s unfortunate for Village Market but I really like their approach. Get the facts, understand the situation, assess the risk, take appropriate steps, mitigate as best as possible, react accordingly, be pragmatic and re-open.

  2. I trust The Village Market more than any other store these days. I know they are dedicated to our community. I appreciate them very much.
