What Should Replace Billy's Fruit Market?
Longtime grocer's departure leaves a void on Madison Street. What do you want to see take its place?
"Fully equipped grocery store...Just stock up and open!" reads a flyer taped to the windows of the building that used to house Billy's Fruit Market.
The longtime grocery store, 400 Madison St., closed in fall 2011 after owner Peter Nikols fell on hard times, "squeezed out by competitors" according to Wednesday Journal.
Located at the northwest corner of Madison Street and Ridgeland Avenue, the single story building is 4,150 square feet. A quick peek inside reveals racks, registers and shelving — all apparently ready for the next tenant.
The going price? $695,000.
