IOLA, Tex. (KBTX) - A long-time Grimes County community staple is closing its doors.

Iola residents reached out to KBTX to let us know that Carter's Grocery is closing. The process started several weeks ago.

KBTX stopped by Friday to get more information. The sign on the door says "closing" and "50 percent off." The store served a general store for the community for years.

"I know it had changed hands not too long ago, but we hate to see it go. It's kind of our only grocery store here in town so it'll be missed," said Jim Standley, owner of nearby Standley's Feed & Seed.

No one was at the store when KBTX stopped by Friday afternoon. We left a message to try to get more details about why's it's closing.
