Gordy’s Market is back in business in Eau Claire

Eau Claire (WQOW)- Gordy’s Market is back in business in Eau Claire after an 11-month hiatus when the company went into receivership.

Many past customers were there for the first day. 

"We’ve been coming to this store since it was Ron’s, it opened up back I think in the early 80s," said Jim Jarzynski, an Eau Claire resident. 

The grocery store located on West Clairemont re-opened at noon Wednesday and the parking lot quickly filled up with customers. 

Several customers told News 18 they missed Gordy’s because it made trips to the store a lot quicker.

"So convenient, just a five-minute car ride over we could get milk, bread whatever we needed," Jarzynski said. "We like the deli here so we’re going to go in and see if we can find something for lunch."

One of Gordy’s primary suppliers filed a lawsuit last year claiming Gordy’s owed them $86 million.
 
Gordy’s entered into receivership and 18 of its stores were eventually sold.  

Gordy’s still has 6 other stores across western Wisconsin, but company president Jeff Schafer told us this is a new company, and not the same one that went into receivership.
