HAGERSTOWN, Md. - Locals gathered on Monday to celebrate an anniversary of a grocery store with years of history in the area. 

Gordons Grocery Store has been in Hagerstown for the past 90 years. Operated by three generations of Gordons, residents say it has become a staple in the neighborhood providing high quality service and food products. 

Owners of the store received a special proclamation given by the mayor for reaching this special milestone. 

"Very good people there, so helpful and they carry my groceries out to the car even though I'm able to carry them for myself, but they have that personnel touch," said Florence Grant, Hagerstown resident. 

If you would like to visit Gordons Grocery they're located on 101 Cypress Street, contact (301)-739-2957.
