414 Court Street: From Produce Store, To Realtor, To...Snack Shop?


The storefront at 414 Court Street has been empty since Iron Gate Properties moved out back in November. Then, at the end of March, it got a fresh coat of bright red paint. And today, a big orange sign finally went up: Snack Shop. What kind of snacks? No indication yet. A peak through a half opened door revealed a few boxes of tea on a shelf.
Oh, and if you need a job, you may want to apply!

I miss Francis and her sons who ran a produce store here until Francis died a few years ago.
They had the best produce and were always incredibly friendly. It was a wonderful little neighborhood place. Below is an advertisement from 1966 from the St. Stephen's Church Centenary Celebration Brochure.

That sign was up before Saturday, not today. Even the neighbors across the street had no idea what sort of store/shop it would be.
