L&M Groceries will hold grand opening event this Saturday

HOLDING GRAND OPENING–Leonard DeRousse is holding a grand opening for L&M Groceries this Saturday, Feb. 17 from 12-3 p.m. The store, formerly known as Myers Korner Market, is located at 215 Market Street in Prairie du Rocher.

“It’s in my blood,” Leonard DeRousse said with a smile about grocery stores. He took over the grocery store in Prairie du Rocher on Nov. 1 of last year, renaming it L & M Groceries, and is inviting all to the grand opening event this Saturday, Feb. 17.

DeRousse is no stranger to Prairie du Rocher, as he was born and raised there; nor is he to grocery stores. He noted that his father had built a store in the town by the school and owned it for 14 years. “I practically grew up in the store.”
