THOMASVILLE, N.C. – A family-owned grocery store in Thomasville is back on its feet three weeks after losing about $50,000 worth of meat and produce in an ice storm.

Cedar Lodge Market has been open for 51 years and owners say a storm has never hit the business this hard.

The store lost thousands of dollars in food when the power was knocked out for three days.

Owners say the community support made their comeback possible.

Ceader Lodge Market says they also worked out a plan to pay for fresh food in smaller payments.

    Outstanding, These people deserve our support more than any chain in the area. This is one of only a few local owned stores that has not been destroyed by the chain stores.

    Mike and Danny and the whole crew are the best!!! My parents did their shopping there for years and years. Matter of fact, they’re so good to their customers—-my mom only had to call and tell Danny what size of ham/turkey breast she wanted and they never disappointed her. When my mom and dad celebrated their 50th in 1989, several of the employees came and helped them celebrate. When my dad passed in 1998, the food that they brought us showed us just how much they cared. I still go to Cedar Lodge to shop—-just wish they still sold the home-made chicken salad–lol! Mike, Danny and everyone at Cedar Lodge—keep up the tradition that Charlie started over a half century ago. Love you all!!!!!
