John’s Grocery on U.S. Highway 80 in Warren County was hit hard due to the U.S. Highway 80 closure earlier this year. Now, the store has announced it will close temporarily due to COVID-19.

Owner Randall Mauck announced the closure in a Facebook post Wednesday.

“I hate making this post right now but the safety of our family and customers is so much more important than selling food, etc.,” he wrote. “So we found out that the store may have been exposed to COVID-19 and for the safety of everyone we will be closed this week and maybe even next. In the mean time, we are going to be having everything sanitized above and beyond the level that we do daily anyway.

“The possible exposure couldn’t have come at a better time (the end of the last day of the week) and we have been very thorough with cleaning and sanitizing especially throughout the last few months but even before that. We’re OCD like that anyway. I can state with 100% certainty that no customer was exposed and have no reason to worry. Please bear with us and try to understand. But again I want to reiterate that no customer was ever compromised, none of us are sick (we’ve been tested), we just wanna be extra extra careful and get everything possible sanitized until it’s safe to lick the floors and windows ha! We love you all and are super grateful to every one of you. We are gonna miss y’all this week and maybe next. Best wishes and good health to everyone!”

Vicksburg resident Kevin Roberts is opening a new Fit Chef location in Madison, Mississippi, next week.

The new Fit Chef is Roberts’ second location. The store promotes a healthy eating lifestyle and offers healthy prepared meals and catering. The grand opening of the new Fit Chef is Wednesday, Oct. 28, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 111 Dees Drive in Madison.

The first Fit Chef is located at 3401 Halls Ferry Road in Roberts hometown of Vicksburg and is popular among local residents.

Roberts has plenty to keep him busy. He is also the owner of The Chopping Block, an axe throwing arcade located at 1504 Washington St. in downtown Vicksburg, which he opened earlier this year.

Roberts is hoping that his second Fit Chef location will have as much success as the first one as he continues to expand the Fit Chef brand.
