Is it just us, or has the neighborhood corner grocery store gone the way of the dinosaur, replaced by big-chain convenience marts and big-box supermarkets?
Consider Bucchin’s Superette, which until a couple of years ago, sold your common grocery staples – milk, bread, newspapers, lottery tickets, etc. – to the folks who live just west of the historic downtown, at Third Avenue and W. Broad Street.
Now the property is closed, boarded up and posted for sale. Can a corner grocery make a comeback here? Or should something else happen with the property?
What goes here, Bethlehem? Tell us in the comments.
