Purple Mountain Natural Market is under new ownership. Longtime Rome business owners LeeAnn and David Dempsey just purchased the natural foods store at 308 East 6th Ave last week. LeeAnn also owns Bella Luna Gifts at 15 E. Third Ave. and her husband, David, owns David Dempsey Insurance Agency in Rome.
“We are very excited to be taking on Purple Mountain,” says LeeAnn. “We do plan to keep it at its current location, but will be expanding the store’s offerings to include lots of organic produce, meats, cheeses and eggs.”
The organic produce and eggs come from Rise N’ Shine organic farm in Calhoun. The Dempseys will also be expanding inventory at Purple Mountain to meet customer requests with more details coming soon. Updated business hours are Monday-Friday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., closed on Sunday.
