Its new ownership and a new name for a local business, but the new owner says all of the employees will keep their jobs.

The Appletree Market in Bryan, at 29th Street and Briarcrest Drive changed hands earlier this month. Next year, it will change names.

New owner Jim Lewis says the store will become "Village Foods", and will carry more natural and organic food options.

The Appletree on highway 21, will not change ownership.

Lewis has owned the Briarcrest Drive building the Appletree operated out of for more than a decade.

He said taking over the business was beneficial to both parties.
