McDonald's Shopworth sold
Updated on: 03.04.14
For the first time since it opened 120 years ago, the landmark IGA grocery store in Bean Blossom is now owned by someone outside of the McDonald family.

Former co-owner Dianna Biddle said the store sold to Jake Singh in late February.

Prior to buying the McDonald's Shopworth IGA, Singh managed the Fayetteville Store near Bedford.

McDonald's Shopworth is the oldest continuously operating business in Brown County. Opening in 1891, it was originally called McDonald's General Merchandise.

The current building was erected in 1962.
