HEMLOCK (WJRT) (12/19/2017) - Ric's Food Center, the lone grocery store in Hemlock, will be closing this week -- possibly as soon as Wednesday.
While the loss of will sting the small, rural town by forcing residents to drive 15 minutes to the next closest grocery store, the community is banding together to help the employees.
All of the store's employees will be losing their jobs less than a week before Christmas.
In response, Hemlock United Methodist Church will be hosting a spaghetti dinner from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday to benefit the employees. All proceeds will be divided equally among the workers.
Anyone with questions can call 989-506-9096.
