Bentley is in his fifth year working at Dorsey’s and is grateful for the support of the community during the pandemic. He was able to take a brief break from working to speak with us about his job and some of the changes Dorsey’s has made in light of the pandemic. Dorsey’s Market is located at 601 Main St. in Oxford.
