Hillside Market re-opens

It will be open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. This is going to remain a family-owned business, as it has been since I can remember. But like every small business, they have almost overwhelming competition from [insert-name-of-big-box-chain-retailer here] so, they need all the support they can to make it, or better yet, to prosper.

This is a good opportunity for people who are boosters of small, family-owned businesses to engage their mouths along with their wallets. So, if you count yourself in that group, please stop in make a purchase as soon as you can, and thank them for making a commitment to our city’s economy. Then … keep coming back, whenever you can.

This is great news. Now I won't have to go "all the way" to the co-op to satisfy my ice cream craving. I really hope they'll carry Ezekiel bread, too.

I live right next to this place and I've been waiting for it to re-open. This place could be a life saver.

Live up the hill and the place was lit up like a packet of crackers last night. Definitely open.  The Hillside needs a grocery store.  Hope this version stocks brie.

Like it a lot. Wish Daugherty's would come back. Move your money to a local bank.

I hope their chicken hasn't changed. Mmm... chicken...

I'm glad the store is open again, but it was nice not having chicken bones and the pink Styrofoam trays they came on blowing ALL OVER the neighborhood. My dog is sure to appreciate the return of all the bones nestled in the grass...

I drove past around 5pm after work and there was a line at the checkout. Woo!

I am glad they are back too.

This is kinda off-topic, but the real reason that bottles started with deposits on them was to prevent littering. There were/are a group of people who wanted the responsibility of take-out container trash to be put back on the people who provided the containers.

I know any small business like this can barely afford that. But it is an interesting concept.  And McDonald's and BK etc. could.

I think people would be up in arms if we tried something like that now.

I miss the 4th street market, the former owners had a great deli, some of the best hot food around and their catering was wonderful.  I know the Kirk's gave it their best to keep the grocery up and running for the hillside, I hope the new market does well.
