It's good to be independent
Each store has its own personality, based on the community where it resides. In resort communities, Clark's is known as a conventional grocery store that emphasizes natural, organic and gourmet products. In the more rural country stores, Clark's is a conventional store that gives people the product mix that they need, and products that help them stretch their dollars as far as they can. It's important for us to listen to people, keep our ear to the ground and make sure we're giving people the products they want, Clark says.
