Mackey’s Do it Best with Mor for Less in downtown Bicknell offers groceries and a hardware store to residents.
Manager Patty Roark explained the store offers services otherwise not available in Bicknell, including the grocery store.
“We are right on Main Street. We are the only grocery store in town and we’ve been part of community for several years now. We know our customers and we are able to help them out. We can do special orders. We can provide them with their needs without having to go out of town,” Roark said.
Roark said the grocery and hardware departments started as two separate stores, but in 2002 owner Myron Mackey constructed the store to put the two departments in different sections of the same building.
The grocery department features a deli, fresh produce and hand-sliced meats, which Roark noted seems to be lost among big chain stores.
The hardware portion of the store includes custom keys, a full service paint department, small lumber yard and small tools in the hardware department.
Mackey’s also just got some plants in for the spring season.
“We offer good products and good service,” Roark said.
Mackey’s is located at 321 N. Main Street, and can be reached at 812-735-4414.
