Beeton Foodland to change owners in May

Ken and Bonnie's Beeton Foodland has been sold to Monica Temmler, who with husband Sandy Bell own the Foodland in Shelburne, and previous to that the grocery store in Tottenham, where they still reside.

Ken and Bonnie Pratt, pictured above, have owned Beeton Foodland, which also includes an LCBO agency store, since 2007.

Mr. Pratt told Free Press Online Friday, shortly after informing store staff of the ownership change which starts May 3rd, the deal "was a buy and sell with Sobeys who had a new franchisee in the wings."

"(Ms Temmler) is a local person with connections to the Foodland stores," he said. "While it was a tough decision, it will give us a chance to have more grandma and grandpa time and time with each other."

Mr. Pratt was a councillor in the former Town of Alliston, and sat as a member of council during the first year of amalgamation in 1991. And he hinted at becoming involved in some capacity again.

"It will also free me up to have more time to look into getting more deeply involved in the local political scene, which as you know has always been a passion of mine."
