Hart's Local Grocers arrives in the inner city. Hope they have security in the store cause they will have lots of shoplifting and fights t deal with. Probably even being robbed. Then the city employees will probably be taking everything in the store that is not locked up or not charging their friends. Another bunch of clowns that think they cam make money. They will have more problems then the money they make.

I'll give them one year max. More like a glorified convenience store. They will not be ale to compete with the three stores down the road: Wegmans, Tops, Price Rite. Add all the specialty stores around town and the public market, I really don't think they can make it. Prove me wrong.

WalMart, BJ's, Sams, Wegmans, Trader Joes, Topps, Price Rite, Aldi's and all the dollar stores and they think they can make it. Its lonely downtown after 5PM. They will be closed in year. Dumb fools. Not to mention the trouble they will have with the city folk.

Don't forget Bart that they can always put a water park in the back of the store if sales start to fall.

Who is in the city on the weekends and after 4:30PM???????Those whites that work in the city shop in the burbs. The whole city is dark at night and I do no mean black but you could take it that way.
Are you mildly mentally deficient or just flat out retarded?

Do you even know where 10 Winthrop Street is? Ever hear of the East End? The most prosperous and bustling neighborhood in arguably the entire city and region?

Ever hear of Abundance Co-op Market? Another organic grocery store located in Downtown Rochester that has been in business since 2001? The grocery store that is exploring expansion because it gets so much business?

Hart is going to fail, right? Moron.

And take your racial statements and shove them up your ass.

Yes Abundance co-op is great, but it is not trying to be more high end like Trader Joe's or Whole Foods. The representative i saw promoting Hart's said it is catering to the area demographics...IE right next to 2-Vine & the uppity ups. Yes you can still get pop & junk food there, but it is going to be more high end. They need to move it out to Victor with all the stores most normal people cant afford to shop at like Von Maur, Pottery Barn, etc... what a joke.

"The locally owned and independent retailer plans to open the store in May."

http://www.rbj.net/article.asp...

I stopped by today to peek in the windows and there's no effing way they will be open this month, let alone next month. No interior walls, no rough electrical, no hvac, no handicapped entrance.

"Hartís Local Grocers has been in the works for more than two years"

What exactly did Warren do to help Harts? They already had a deal with COMIDA. If anything, the final land deal may have been delayed to give luv some sort of credit.

You heard it from me first.

"Summer" could mean August.

Kind of hilarious that it's already May and they just now came out with a press release stating they won't be open in May.
Where is your "communication" director???

Guess the "hart" won't be beating for a while.
