Email

FOSSTON, Minn. -- Fosston Implement, a mainstay business serving farmers in the area very likely will be closing its doors in October after 90 years in the community, a victim of its own small-town size.

Roy Dufault, whose family has owned the John Deere dealership since 1969, said the decision is not of his making and that there appears to be nothing he can do, since John Deere is discontinuing his dealership agreement.

And his customers are not happy.
