Full grocery store planned for downtown Youngstown

Full grocery store planned for downtown Youngstown


The owner of the 16 Wick Building said there will be a full-scale grocery store downtown on that structure’s ground floor by the fall of 2014.

“I am as committed and focused on this as anything,” said Dominic Marchionda, managing partner of the NYO Property Group, which owns several downtown buildings including 16 Wick. A grocery store is “a big piece of the puzzle to the downtown revitalization. It will increase population downtown. We will move forward on this. I’m going to make it work.”

One would think that such a market would do well in the downtown if the merchandise theft rate can be managed.

Apartments are not selling so Markionda needs something to spur sales and someone else stupidly putting in a grocery store might, just might help sell more apts.

Build it and they will come! A full featured liquor assortment at reasonable pricing would be a hit. Cigarettes and other tobacco products would be the icing on the cake. Sandwiches packed ready to go would compliment the store. Keeping it plain and simple stocked with what consumers demand most should be the plan.

Who will pay for this? Certainly not Mr. Marchionda - bad habit of using grant $ to not pay his local subcontractors for work performed on his behalf!

Low priced liquor in a downtown store? (I know you're kidding)

That would be like lighting up a smoke while washing road tar off you car with gasoline.

Look at the bright side Joe. Arrests from the fallout would bring extra money into the city coffers from fines and costs. Attorneys would reap a bonanza and have extra money to put back into the economy.

So many silly low-intelligence people on the Vindy comment threads.

There is already a bodega downtown, selling liquor and wine and beer and sandwiches. It's called Downtown Circle.

They do a good business. No crime or theft problems.

So the dumby dumb dumbs in here should probably go put their thumbs up their butts.

Oh wait. That's where they already are.

@ Tigerlily:

Lighten up, boy (or is it girl?)

These posts are fun, not an IQ test.
