OAK HILL (WVVA) - Grants Supermarket will be filling a void left in Oak Hill after the closure of a longtime grocery store late last year.

Grants has signed a new lease to take over the vacant Value Plus grocery store that closed in November of last year.

Grants has hired nine of the previous Value Plus employees and are currently interviewing to fill 30 more positions.

On Wednesday, employees from other Grants locations and their suppliers re-stocked shelves at the Oak Hill store.

Grants currently operates 10 other locations in the Mercer, Tazewell, Giles and McDowell counties.

In November, Value Plus store owner David Stephens told WVVA News his store was closing after being unable to commit to a five-year lease amid competition from larger retailers such as Kroger and Walmart.

Stephens said at the time he was hopeful the city would find a new business to inhabit his former location.
