Street Beat: What is the effect of Chester's Market closing in Joseph?

Max Tovar


"I didn't shop there, so I don't care. I always shop at the Little Store."

Lisa Kemple


"I really enjoyed Chester's when it was here. I miss it. It's unfortunate we can't have a full service grocery in Joseph."

Bob Bales


"Well, I miss it. It seems like another nail in Joseph's coffin. I hope someone latches onto the opportunity and opens another store."

Nicole Eldeen


"My mom said it was very inconvenient. Now she has to drive all the way to Enterprise for food, because the Little Store doesn't have everything."

Sherry Strickland


"I miss Chester's. I miss Jerry's. I'm used to picking up items there. I was changing my shopping habits to support the store more, but not fast enough, I guess."

Cathy Dodson


Little Store clerk

"We're really, really busy. We're starting to add things like potatoes, frozen vegetables and taco shells. We're trying to help the people of Joseph out, but we have limited space."
