#VT - Mike Comeau is preparing to open a new grocery market in Johnson, Vermont, in the coming months. As written by the Stowe Reporter, Comeau is turning to the people of Johnson to help name the new store. He turned to the Johnson Front Porch Forum and got more than 100 name suggestions from his future customers!
Since Tropical Storm Irene shuttered the Grand Union in Johnson in 2011, local folks have not had a local option for groceries. This will be a wonderful step forward for yet another small local business, and we’re glad that FPF could play a small role.

After many months of hard work, a new Johnson Grocery is very close to becoming a reality! Mike Comeau – Vermont entrepreneur who owns Richmond Market in Richmond and Village Market in Waterbury – is finalizing plans to open a new grocery at the former Grand Union site in our community. Mike is looking for a name for Johnson’s future grocery store. He would like the store to have a name that identifies with Johnson as a community and is meaningful to us. So please, if you have suggestions for the store name, reply to the forum or email to me. I will collect your ideas and forward to Mike. Mike is also looking for a logo for his sign and letterhead so if you have suggestions for the logo as well, please let me know.
