Retailer opening downtown grocery store and restaurant
A local retailer is opening a new downtown grocery store and restaurant this weekend.
Russo’s International Market will host a grand-opening celebration on Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. at its new 4,500-square-foot location in Grand Rapids, at 241 Fulton St. W.
The location's restaurant will seat up to 60 customers indoors and up to 20 customers outdoors, as well as offer to-go options.
The opening menu will feature gourmet sandwiches, pizza, salads, Italian entrees and kid-friendly options.
The location will also sell a wide selection of food, wines, deli items, craft beers, liquors, kitchenware and more.
“We always knew we would return to our roots, and this second location will allow us to serve the downtown community, as we once did 112 years ago,” said Phil Russo, president, Russo’s International Market.
Russo’s International Market, founded in 1905, also operates a location on 29th Street SE in Grand Rapids, which was purchased in 1976 and expanded in 2008.
