This neighborhood grocery was in business at this location from 1977 to 1997 and was succeeded by the Wilson Food Store from 1997 to 1999. The building has been vacant since 1999 and fallen into despair, and the city is in the process of purchasing the property. The future of the building is unclear, but most likely it will be razed by the city.
