The Daily Journal has a very cute piece on the "new old" 50 year old Oak Grove Market across from the BHS football field and track. It notes
After multiple changes in ownership, the Oak Grove Market was going downhill and eventually became a place mostly for high school students to hang out and get their chips and drinks after school.
“When I got here, it was dreadful. The previous owner just sort of gave up,” said (Steve) Rich. “It’s about bringing back a corner neighborhood store.”
And the neighbors are positive on the changes
“It has definitely improved from what it was before,” said Charles Chavez, from Burlingame. “It’s convenient and it sure beats a 7-Eleven.”
I can think of two other neighborhood corner markets in B'game--the one on Howard Ave and the Adeline Market, but it sounds like Oak Grove is taking things to a whole new level Did I miss any other? Just another thing that make B'game lcoal B'game instead of one homogenous clone of somewhere else.
