PRINCETON — The early week downpour caused problems that forced temporary closure of Princeton's Hometown IGA grocery store Tuesday and part of Wednesday.

The store reopened around 1:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Assistant Manager Gabby Feagley said rain came into the store overnight through the ceiling and drains, but plumbing crews were making repairs.

Feagley said on Wednesday that the deli was closed, but should be open Thursday.

She said that, contrary to rumors, there was no raw sewage in the store, and an odor in the area is from the rain that seeped in and the store's proximity to the City of Princeton's sewer treatment plant.
