MANKATO, Minn. - Residents are wondering what they will do now that grocery stores have closed in three southern Minnesota towns.
The towns of Truman, Kiester and Elysian have lost their only grocery stores. The three stores abruptly closed June 30.
City officials are looking at ways to keep the stores operating. The nearest towns with grocery stores are miles away.
The three stores were owned by Brad Gohla of Elysian. When asked by The Free Press about his plans for the stores, Gohla said only, "We closed," and made no further comment.
