Update: In the fall of 2012, this store was redeveloped into a new, smaller grocery store and several other parcels. See some of the buildings that used to be on the site in this post from 2020 (third photo).
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.
