BJ's is a great little grocery store located by the railroad station in brownville junction. They have all the same things a big grocer would...not many brands of the same things but if you need it they have it. They also cut their own meat fresh while you wait or you can get pre-packaged meats out of the counter. They have the best oriental boneless ribs that I have found in a grocery store....ready to be grilled at home! Stop by they are worth the trip! by the way they also rent movies!
PROS: fresh meats, nice people working there, helpful
