Going out by giving back
Ken and Bonnie Pratt, on the right, and the staff at Beeton Foodland helped raise $1310.00 for Mathhew's House Hospice on Saturday during a garage sale of items that are not part of the store's sale. As well, the charity BBQ raised a further $270 for the Elgin Armstrong team in the Alliston MS Walk being held May 4th, 2014.

Beeton Foodland, LCBO to close for ownership transition this weekend

Posted April 29, 2014

Ken and Bonnie's Beeton Foodland will close on Saturday at 7 pm, so that a closing inventory count can be completed, reopening Sunday morning at 9 am under the new ownership of Monica Temmler.

The LCBO/Beer Store partnered agency store will also close on Saturday at 7 pm, but is to remain closed at least until sometime Monday while the license transfer process is finalized.

The Foodland will then resume operating under the same hours as currently in place: Mon-Sat 7am-Midnight, Sundays 9 am-8 pm.

"Bonnie and I and the staff of Ken & Bonnie's Beeton Foodland apologize for the inconvenience this causes but as sure as the sun will come up on Sunday, the staff will be ready and able to serve you with Monica Temmler at the helm," Mr Pratt told Free Press Online.

The couple held a garage sale and fundraiser on Saturday for Matthews House Hospice, and raised $1,310 as a final business gesture, to donate.

"We were able to see lots of friends/customers from our days in Beeton and my 20 years at the IGA in Tottenham," he said. "A response like this is so typical of the community minded caring people who make the Beeton Foodland/ LCBO Agency Store their place to shop. It is that piece of life we will miss the most."
