Downtowne Grocery and Deli closed for not paying taxes

JOHNSON CITY, TN (WJHL) – A local business that moved to downtown Johnson City last year is now closed.

The state reportedly seized Downtowne Grocery and Deli on East Main Street for not paying taxes.

We saw signs on the businesses doors Friday.

Last year the owner said they wanted to move downtown because of the lack of markets in the area.

We reached out to Downtown Development Manager Dianna Cantler who said the closure leaves downtown Johnson City without any convenience markets.
