Kaplan Mayor Mike Kloesel announced on Saturday that the Jr Food Mart in Kaplan is being torn down.

Kloesel says that “so many people had great memories of Jr Food Mart” and that “it’s tough to let it go but now it’s time to move forward and make way for something new.”

The Mayor thanked several people for assisting with the project, including Monique Dronet Jameyson, Heather Guidry, and city attorney Mr. Woody Woodruff. Kloesel also thanked Lard Oil Company.

Kloesel added that even though removing the food mart “reveals another eye sore right behind it,” that the city has that building “in our sights next.”
