Federal CARES Act Money Being Used To Reopen Laughlin Grocery Store
Laughlin is getting a new grocery store.
It will replace the one that closed in March because of problems caused by the coronavirus pandemic. It was the only one in town, Clark County said.
The county said up to $120,000 from the CARES ACT will be used to reopen the store by paying rent, utilities, inventory, equipment and renovations.
The owner of the new store said in a statement that the grant provides some financial security. The nearest grocery stores for Laughlin residents since March have been in Bullhead City.
