Walkable Neighborhood Market
June 18, 2018
It has been just over two months that one of Westview’s newest businesses opened its doors to residents and visitors – Westview Corner Grocery. In its most recent tenure, the space at 1562 Ralph David Abernathy Blvd had been converted to a convenience store in 2009, but had served as one of the neighborhood’s grocery stores dating back to the building’s construction 1949 when it initially housed a Kroger. Over the years different grocery stores, such as Food Town, Thrift Town, White’s, and Denny’s Super Save, called the location home, until Westview residents and entrepreneurs, Patrick Berry and Steffi Langer-Berry, revived the grocery store model in April 2018. The store now offers a range of products from natural, organic and local specialties, craft beer, and wine, to conventional snacks and beverages.
