Oxendale's Market shops changes to store, stock
With two shifts in ownership in just over three years, employees at what still looks like Jim's Market in West St. Paul are used to seeing changes to the store and stock.
In 2011, Jim's family-owned supermarket chain bought and renovated R.C. Dick's Market at 374 W. Bernard St., near the intersection of Smith Avenue and Dodd Road. The store changed hands again this month, and, though the only noticeable change so far is a paper sign taped to the entrance with the new name, Oxendale's Market, the employees are already looking forward to the fresh approach under new owner Neil Oxendale.
