The self-checkout lanes were in high demand as the City Market in Craig reopened on Thursday, Jan. 5, after part of its roof collapsed and closed the grocery store earlier this week.

City Market closed abruptly on Tuesday, Jan. 3, with a sign posted on the grocery store’s front door saying it would be closed for the rest of the day due to a roof issue.

The store remained closed on Wednesday, Jan. 4, as a corporate spokesperson said the company hoped to reopen the store later this week.

The extent of the roof damage was not clear on Friday, Jan. 6, but many of the checkout lines inside the store were out of commission, blocked off by a series of stabilizers put up to support a portion of the store’s roof.

A sign was posted on the front door of the Craig City Market on Wednesday, Jan. 4, stating the store would be closed for the rest of the day.
