Long-time Rock Valley grocery store sold to Sunshine Foods

ROCK VALLEY, Iowa (KTIV) – After nearly 60 years of service, a longtime Rock Valley grocery store is changing owners.

On Friday the Van Otterloo family announced they had sold Van’s Marketplace Foods to Sunshine Foods.

Sunshine Foods will take over Van’s Marketplace Foods beginning in the middle of July.

“It’s never an easy decision to leave something you’ve spent your entire career doing and that’s been a part of your family for decades, but knowing we are passing the torch to another family and community orientated business makes leaving a lot easier,” said owner Kevin Van Otterloo.

Sunshine Foods has 15 locations, including in Rock Rapids, Hawarden, and Milford.
