Carl, of Kenny and Carl's Supervalu in Walkerton, has lived in the small town all his life. He has been in the grocery business almost as long.

"I started working in a grocery store on the other side of the tracks when I was fourteen years old. Now, I'm much older than fourteen and still doing it in the same community. A lot of the people that shop here watched me grow up, and I've watched them grow old," Carl tells us.

His clientele may be growing older, but they still walk the aisles in search of the same things.

"This place has the best deals, they do have great bargains," shopper Mary Schaefer says.

"It's a great place to come. The ownership is great, they treat people right," Kackie Chrapliwy says of the store.

Shoppers say they come for the great deals and the hometown feel.

Now, the owners are bringing that feeling home to the people who cannot come to the store and shop the aisles for themselves.

Carl and his wife have been delivering groceries to homebound customers for about three months.

Marge Kerr, has groceries brought to her home every other week.

She says Carl delivers more than just a couple of bags of groceries.

"It's a blessing, it's a blessing. I'm so glad they came up with this because it keeps me independent, I don't have to rely on neighbors or friends to do my shopping for me," Kerr says.

Kenny and Carl’s will deliver to anyone homebound - and who lives within ten miles of the store - for free.

Right now, they have six regular delivery customers, and they say they are ready to take more on.
