LITTLEVILLE — Town officials in Littleville have secured a $200,000 grant that will help a local business open the town’s first full-line grocery store.
State Sen. Roger Bedford, D-Russellville, announced this morning that Littleville had received an economic improvement grant from the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs.
Littleville Mayor Kenneth Copeland said the town will also put $63,000 on the project, which includes improving access from U.S. 43 into the business.
Copeland said Big Star Super Market will open in a 10,000-square foot town-owned building near Town Hall.
Copeland said the business will increase the town’s tax base. He said Big Star will employee 21 people.
