1/24/19 – 5:34 A.M.

After more than 23 years in business, a fixture in downtown Findlay is closing its doors. The owners of Mendoza Tex Mex Grocery Store and Carry Out are retiring at the end of the month. According to their daughter, Ernesto and Concepcion Mendoza want more time to do things with the family.

Connie Yruegas says the business has always been a family affair. She helped with marketing and used her business degree to help show her parents how to run the day-to-day operations. Concepcion and Ernesto’s grandchildren would help stock pop in the grocery store.

The Mendoza’s started the grocery store when Connie convinced them there was a market for Mexican food and groceries in Findlay.
