I met Jimmy, one of the owners, at the South Loop Market this morning. It's a family-run business, and Jimmy's wife and 8-month old daughter looked on as we talked.
The South Loop Market will be opening a second location, at the new 235 Van Buren high-rise, in September. The existing store at 1720 S Michigan carries "all the main convenient goods from a large supermarket, crammed into 3,200 square feet, which is exactly what we'll have at 235 Van Buren," said Jimmy. It has a truly outstanding selection of beers and wines -- over 250 varieties of each -- for a store its size.
South Loop Market has had very positive reviews at Yelp.
