Long-running grocery store permanently closes its doors

A longtime grocery store has shut its doors for good. The Oakhurst IGA, just off Corridor G, has been open for decades and even survived a gas explosion in the early eighties. That caused the store to close for three years during the rebuilding process, but it eventually reopened. This time the owner of the store sold the building and a new tenant will take over, and decided against making it a grocery store. The Oakhurst IGA closed for good on Saturday evening.
