INDIANAPOLIS — After partially re-opening on Tuesday due to a failed health inspection a local grocery store is now entirely back in business.

The Safeway located at 3008 Kessler Boulevard North Drive had its food license suspended on August 22 after a Marion County Health Department inspection found rodent droppings, urine and other evidence of pest activity in several areas of the store.

A second inspection conducted by the health department on Tuesday, August 27 found the violations had been corrected on the general sales floor and meat department. However, the Deli department did not pass the inspection.

On Friday, after a third inspection, the deli was re-opened for business.

The Marion County Health Department sent RTV6 the following regarding the grocery store:

"The health department inspected the deli counter of the Safeway at 3008 Kessler Blvd. N. Drive and approved it to re-open. All areas of the store are now back in operation."
