Greg and Mitch Carlson opened Carlson’s Grocery in 1991 after purchasing the former Dave’s IGA location. Both Greg and Mitch had worked for the previous owner. In the spring of 1997, they moved the store across the street to its current location, gaining a newer, larger building that allowed them to expand their services.
