Churchill's buys Perrysburg Bassett's Market

Posted by LS - email

PERRYSBURG (WTOL) - A local grocery store icon is looking to expand. Walt Churchill Jr. of the Churchills stores is adding a location in Perrysburg.

Churchill is buying out Basset's Market on North Dixie Highway. The new store will be called Walt Churchill's market.

The store will not be shut down while the changeover takes place, so the pharmacy can stay open.

This is a homecoming of sorts for the Churchill family. They owned and operated a store on the same site during the 1990s.
