OLTON, TX (KCBD) - A recognizable mom and pop grocery store on 8th Street in Olton will close its doors on Sunday.

The store, which has been open for the last 11 years, is being forced to close. Leon's II is the only grocery store in the town of Olton.

Owner Tanya Noack said it will be hard to close knowing there are people around the town who cannot afford to shop at an out of town grocery store, however, they have no choice.
