Update: In the fall of 2012, this store was redeveloped into a new, smaller grocery store and several other parcels.
It never amazes me that a grocery store at the corner of Jefferson and I-44 could not stay in business. Was it because they offered crappy, expired products to the locals? Was it shoplifted blind? Who knows, but I find it bizarre that no one can think of a use for such prime real estate across from the Lafayette Square neighborhood.
