BOONVILLE, N.Y. -- Great American in Boonville is closing.

Store hours will be reduced now through the closing date, which is June 8.

There will also be a 20 percent off sale beginning on May 26.

WKTV asked about plans for the building after the closure and the owners say they do not know.

Owner Lynn Lockwood said in a statement:

“It is with great regret that we announce the closing of Boonville’s own Great American. This family-owned and operated grocery store has faithfully served the Boonville area for the past 22+ years and is very grateful to its many loyal customers. With the purchase power of the large corporation competitors versus a small independent coupled with the ever-rising costs of pension, healthcare, and New York State minimum wages, we are no longer able to continue operations.” -Lynn Lockwood, Owner, Boonville Great American

Also going on in Boonville, Oneida County Legislators have approved the sale of the 200-year old Hulbert House to Carl Vogel of Carl's Furinture.

And a series of upgrades are coming for Erwin Park including a swimming pool, an amphitheater, larger parking lots, among other improvements.

Village streets Superintendent Eric Salmon hopes to have all of that done within five years.
