OTTAWA — Carts rattling along the aisles, the push of buttons on a cash register and the smell of candy peanuts; these are what one will find when entering Kohls Market in Ottawa on a typical afternoon.

The peak time for the market, at 1755 E. Main St., is from 3:30 to 6 p.m., said owner Mark Kohls, as it’s “after school and after work.”

When the grocery store isn’t getting deliveries, about 11 employees are in the store. They stock shelves, check customers out and man the deli counter.

The deli counter is busy, and the sound of meat wrappers crinkling can be heard as the employees rush around behind the counter to fill orders.

Passing by the produce aisle, one will see “Kohls Candyland” and can breathe in the smell of candy peanuts and other confections.

Old music is coming in through the speakers and, on a rainy day, the squeak of shoes can be heard on the floor.
