>Food Center celebrates its grand opening

BATAVIA -- Grand-opening ceremonies were held Wednesday for a Food Center, which almost doubles the size of the Wal-Mart in the Town of Batavia.

The 125,000 square-foot supermarket addition, for which planning began three years ago, will increase full- and part-time employment to up to 400. The Food Center will operate 24 hours a day. Wal-Mart came to Batavia in 1995.

Construction took a year, but the start was delayed for two years by lawsuits brought by nearby residents.
