Meet Your Neighbor: Justin Scott

If you have ever grocery shopped at Edward’s Food Giant on S. Main, you have most likely been greeted by fellow neighbor Justin Scott.

Justin is a perfect example of what My Historic Downtown stands for. Not only does he always have a smile and a cheery attitude, he also takes the time to learn the names of each family member. He really encompasses our concept of shopping local and neighborly love.
