"If I want to borrow a phrase from the New York Lottery, I'd say all you need is a dollar and a dream," Struminger said. “We're asking only a dollar to buy the business.”

One dollar gets the new owner everything you see inside the Batesville Market. It may sound like a bargain, but buying this business comes with great responsibility.

“I'd like them to commit to keeping the business going and growing it,” Struminger said.

The current owner reopened the store three years ago. In the last six months, the Batesville Market quit losing money and turned a profit. Struminger said he accomplished what he set out to do, so he’s looking for a passionate person with a dream to keep the store open.

“It's local for the locals,” he said. "Bring your dream, and your dollar."

If you want to be the next owner of the Batesville Market, you can email dollar@batesvillemarket.com or call the store.
