Wow, this is really big news. I didn’t see this one coming.
It sounds like a really nice grocery option. I can see it becoming a draw.January 18, 2013 11:26 am at 11:26 am #530415
My wife will be excited to hear this as she made us a New Years resolution to eat more organic foods. I think being next to a large Giant Eagle might give it an edge over the downtown Hill’s Market and the new expanded Whole Paycheck on Lane Ave as it is hard to do all of your shopping in these smaller, pricier specialty markets regardless of what they say.
The good news for us is that we are near the middle of this triangle of food. The nice new Short North Kroger is also within walking distance for the staples. It wasn’t that long ago that the old Kroghetto was our mainstay. The grocery scene has changed a LOT in the last 3 years.January 18, 2013 1:04 pm at 1:04 pm #530416
I think this is something like what people would like near the new Columbus Commons apartments.

Friends who live in Old North Columbus were just telling me how they miss the closed Sunflower Market in the Gateway. I think this will be perfect for them and possibly a better location then what the Gateway offered. As someone said you need to have the right mix of money and demographics to support a store like this and I think Clintonville has that.
As far as being next to Giant Eagle, Huffman’s in UA is doing fine and it just down the street from the GE Market District. Of course there are a lot of people and $$ in UA.January 18, 2013 3:10 pm at 3:10 pm #530418
It will be good to see that plaza revamped. I hate to admit it, but I have had more than my share of meals in the questionable Chinese Buffet attached to it.
Depending on how they cut it up, there is actually a good amount of space there.January 18, 2013 3:13 pm at 3:13 pm #530419

It recently reopened as an adequate Chinese restaurant.January 18, 2013 3:35 pm at 3:35 pm #530420
any idea how many square feet this store is going to be? Looks to be larger than Weilands which would make it the largest of the small grocery stores in the area.January 18, 2013 3:42 pm at 3:42 pm #530421

You ever been in that Goodwill? It’s not particularly big.January 18, 2013 3:49 pm at 3:49 pm #530422
Didn’t this location used to be a Big Bear before they moved across the street to the now-Giant Eagle? (When the bowling alley burned down?)January 18, 2013 4:04 pm at 4:04 pm #530423

That building is fairly deep, the thrift store used a good chunk for sorting and storage. I don’t have a clue what the total square footage is though.January 18, 2013 4:04 pm at 4:04 pm #530424

It used to be Kroger before it moved to Broadway & High. The Big Bear across the street replaced the Lane Ave. roller rink Big Bear (I think).January 18, 2013 4:18 pm at 4:18 pm #530425

Does anyone else realize that Lucky’s Grocery store will be in the same shopping center as Lucky Dragon restaurant?? We are through the looking-glass, people.January 18, 2013 4:39 pm at 4:39 pm #530426
I think this will be a boon for the neighborhood. While it’s a bit close to other small markets (Weiland’s, Clintonville Community Market), I think that those are niche-y enough to survive. If anything, the increase in local competition might result in improvement in those markets, too.
Being located on the busline might also bring business down from Worthington and up from the campus/downtown area, or at least until the Hills location downtown fills the gap.January 18, 2013 5:24 pm at 5:24 pm #530427January 18, 2013 5:37 pm at 5:37 pm #530428
