Grocery or Supermarket
“Jordan's store is 5 minutes away. As a kid I’d walk to Jordan's for basic things like milk and bread and often times a candy bar! Jordan's has a little of everything and is also a great place for fishing supplies and advice. Jordan’s is still owned by the Cutting family for as long as I can remember. It’s pretty much a local icon.”
