A well known South Georgia grocer has died.

Joe Harvey Junior passed away Thursday morning after a long battle with cancer. He owned the J.H. Harvey Company in Nashville with more than 45 stores across the state, and sold the company to the Delhaize Group in 2003.

Harvey was well known throughout South Georgia for his television commercials and frequent store visits.

Tom Robinson, Harvey's Chief Operating Officer, says "He instilled in every store three basic principles - exceptional customer care, low prices and developing the best team members in the grocery business."

Memorial services will be held Saturday at Strickland Memorial Stadium at Epworth by the Sea at St. Simons.
