|A new era for family owned Tony's Finer Foods started today in Lincoln Square (ALL photos Eric Rojas, Broker, Kale Realty)|
|The pharmacy and clinic areas have been removed. In it's place is an expanded meat department.|
|There are display tables everywhere.|
Many of Tony's family members and execs were on hand to greet customers. Although I'm not a fan of the new color palate and general look of the store you can tell these guys are here to do business. They maintained the coffee bar area in the front of the store with added gelato and (I think) smoothie drinks. All the specialty counters (deli, meats, fish) look great.
Bottom line is the store re-delivers a much needed full service grocer to residents of Lincoln Square, North Park and West Ridge neighborhoods. We congratulate the Tony's family on their new store and look forward to shopping there for a long time!
