Brothers build their dream in Gratz

-A A +A

Larry and David Smith saw a way to help community

By John Whitlock

Nearly a year and a half after opening, two brothers’ dream of making life a little easier for their neighbors in Gratz is going strong.
Smitty’s Gas and Food opened in April 2012 and has continued to grow ever since.
Co-owners Larry and David Smith, who live near the store off KY 355, had the idea of opening a store for several years before they decided to do it.
“(Larry) always wanted a store around here,” his brother David Smith said. “He owned the property and we just decided one day we were going to do it.”
