On Wednesday January 30, 2013, the red ribbon was cut at the Mercantile Market in Correctionville, marking the opening of the culmination of a community volunteer effort to replace the town's former grocery store, which was destroyed by a fire. Since that event, Correctionville residents have had to travel 20-30 miles to buy their groceries.
