Yes, "April Fool's Day," they laughed "It was always a dream that I would own my okn store," said Norm. Myra always wanted to own her own business so when Norm was asked if he was interested in buying Gordon's IGA, they thought long and hard about it. We had known that Gordon's was selling out.

"We will definitely make some changes," said Norm. "We have a lot of ideas but will take it slow. We want to try new products and revamp some departments." Norm's Hometown Grocery will remain members of the Independent Grower's Alliance (IGA).
