  • Any idea about the type of stuff they have available? I’ve walked past their window and it seems like general grocery aisle fare. Still worth a look though.

  • Their website (, says that they have a variety of gourmet foods, organic foods and snacks, imported candies and nuts, as well as everyday essentials.

    So, this will be pretty interesting. I think if the prices are decent and the selection is good, it could do pretty good for its self.

  • Good luck! I’m always interested in learning about new independent retail businesses. I’ll have to stop by soon and check it out.
