Grocery Store Task Force will help to facilitate a new grocery store for the citizens of St. John


The St. John City Council heard from the Grocery Store Task Force President Tonya Sanders, of four potential grocery store owners. She recommended the city have a feasibility study done which the Stafford County Economic Development would assist with. St. John has been without a grocery store since Dillons closed in February of 2016. The residents of St. John voted to implement a 1% sales tax to take effect in January 2017. The funds generated from the tax will help with cost to establish a new grocery store and to further business development that includes infrastructure development to support new businesses.
