FAIRVIEW - Attitude is everything when it comes to challenges that test our wills.  Some give up while others rise to greater heights.  Some see disaster and choose victimized, while others feel blessed for the opportunity to grow and excel.

Daniel Swartzendruber is of the latter persuasion.  To Dan, the past is only a measuring stick to the future, and the future of Fairview Food Market is looking brighter than ever despite the ravages from a couple of runaway semi-trucks.  

Whether the current goal to re-open in January of 2020 is met or not, Fairview Food Market’s opening is growing closer. We all know the trials and tribulations of the construction trades when dealing with old buildings with hidden surprises. Patience will lead to greatness.

Many improvements such as fresh paint and new ?ooring are being realized even in the undamaged parts of the building, while the damaged section gets its bare bones surgically repaired. 

“Upon re-opening there will be minimal changes on where products were displayed in the past, but we will be looking as well to create the best possible store layout we can through the services of a store layout professional.  The front section will remain as the produce section, but also include some new surprises I think everyone will get excited about,” Dan exuded with a twinkle in his eye.

“We would like everyone to know,” he added.  “We will not be processing hunter’s venison this season while we are closed.  Please freeze your venison and we will be happy to process those orders when we re-open.”

The what and whereabouts of the market’s employees is also probably on everyone’s mind.  Dan wanted to assure folks that eight of his key employees have been taken care of and will return upon re-opening. Being well-insured played a huge role in retaining his trained help, as well as forwarding the scheduled construction toward completion.

Dan has been fully engaged in the construction process thus far and is getting excited about being back to work.

 He thoroughly misses seeing and helping his friends and members of the Fairview community.
