I found out that the owner of the Stony Island Food Mart at 83rd and Stony recently died and his family closed the store about a month ago.
My condolences to the family on their loss.
It’s bad enough to lose a dedicated small business owner but it really hits home to lose one of the few grocery stores serving the south side.
If memory serves me correctly an independent, black owned business at that.
It makes you wonder what’s next for the shuttered grocery store.
Anyone have any news or information?
