Change is in the air for Ashbury Market, the neighborhood corner store at Frederick and Ashbury streets.
After a failed attempt to sell the business in 2017, owner Ben Robinson has finally secured a buyer, and wound down his ownership of the business in February. The new owner assumed occupancy on March 1.
According to liquor license transfer documents on file with the state, the new owner is Adelheid Hanley. Hanley didn't respond to a Hoodline reporter's inquiries about the vision for the revamped shop.
But former owner Robinson confirmed via email that the business was expected to remain largely the same: a niche neighborhood market with groceries and a selection of beer and wine.
"The new owners are planning on beefing up the market and doing some remodel[ing]," he added.
The market is currently closed for light construction and renovations; no construction permit applications have been filed with the city. We'll keep you posted on when it will reopen, and any potential changes to its offerings.
