Corner grocery opens in Midtown
Downtown once again has a neighborhood corner grocery whose owners believe will match the needs and wants of residents in Midtown, Mesta Park, the Plaza District and Heritage Hills.
The Market at Commonplace, 1325 N Walker Ave., opened Thursday after a nearly two-year wait. Originally launched with Ben Nockels, Jenn and Duggan Roberts, the market is now separately owned and operated from the nearby bookstore.
Eric Berumen and Chris Castro own and operate the store, which is open seven days a week, 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays. Castro, who previously operated the Commonplace Cafe attached to the bookstore, will be making grab-and-go meals at the market that customers will be able to enjoy on the store’s patio as furnishings arrive.
Berumen said first day sales exceeded expectations even as more product stocking continues over the next several days.
