Local Market on Railroad Street added drive-through service for its patrons.

Any convenience-oriented business has a drive through, market owner Gene Allen said. None are without a drive-through.

Its just an added plus for the convenience of our customers. They dont have to foofoo up. They can just drive through in their pajamas.

Allen said he wanted customers and prospective customers to know that they can get anything the market offers at the drive-through window, except liquor. Thats against the law, he explained.

A customer can call in an order and then drive through to pick it up.

In addition to all of the groceries, the full deli orders are also available at the window.

In addition to the usual deli orders, We have a daily special, he added.

Examples of the daily special are a 5-inch pizza and a soda, or a quarter-pound hot dog, chips and soda.

Allen said he wants his clients to know that he provides the convenience of all service, including the window service, open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., 365 days a year.

  • Exclusive: China meat supplier faced claims last year over unethical work practices
    Shanghai Husi Food, the U.S.-owned Chinese food supplier at the center of a meat safety scandal, won a court case earlier this year against a former quality control officer whose claims included that he was made to forge meat production dates. Wang Donglai, who worked at Shanghai Husi Food from 2007 to 2013, sought around 38,000 yuan ($6,100) in compensation for damage to his health from exposure to chlorine used as a cleaning agent by the meat processor. He also sought to terminate his contract at Shanghai Husi, claiming he was forced to work overtime and made to do "unethical work" that violated food safety laws, court documents showed. At his hearing last October, Wang said he was unwilling to illegally forge dates at the plant, adding that he repeatedly urged his employer to change a practice which he said violated food safety laws and hurt consumer interests, according to court documents seen by Reuters.
