Downtown convenience store owner converting to full-service grocery

Published: Wed, November 2, 2016 @ 12:10 a.m.

By David Skolnick

skolnick@vindy.com

YOUNGSTOWN

A convenience store is being converted into downtown’s only full-service grocery store and will be ready to open in a month, its owner said.

Al Adi, owner of the Downtown Circle Convenience and Deli, received approval Tuesday from the city’s Design Review Committee to move his business’s front door to the middle of his storefront and put a walk-up window on the east side of the business.

It’s part of Adi’s plan to transform his convenience store and deli into a grocery store that will include fresh produce, meats, more deli products and hot foods that it already sells “and a lot more grocery items. The existing space will be transformed into grocery aisles.”

Wick Park Project Advances with City’s Help
By George Nelson | December 2, 2016

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — The city Board of Control has approved entering into a memorandum of understanding with Youngstown CityScape and the Youngstown Rotary Foundation for the second of five $20,000 installments it is making toward modernizing the pavilion in Wick Park on the North Side.

Also, updates on the Lincoln Ave. and Wick Ave. paving projects in the article: http://businessjournaldaily.com/wick-park-project-advances-with-citys-help/

What excites me about the Pavilion project, as a Wick Park Neighborhood resident, is that the funds were raised so quickly.  I know someone from the Youngstown Rotary, and he said that they expected the fundraising process to last three years.  But, they raised much of the funding they needed in less than one.

Mayor Wants Fast Action from Gallagher’s New Owner
By George Nelson | January 13, 2017

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – The new owner of the Gallagher Building downtown needs to make something happen with it soon, Mayor John McNally said.

“It can’t just be something where we transfer ownership and then we transfer ownership. That’s not going to be sufficient. Something needs to happen,” he tells The Business Journal.

...

Sheridan said Thursday he would like to develop professional space on the ground floor of the three-story building and a café incorporating the building’s enclosed patio, and “some type of housing” on the upper levels. He already has had inquiries from local attorneys regarding the proposed office space, he said. “I think [McNally] is going to be impressed with how quickly I can accomplish things.”

This morning, on the bus ride into work, I took a few construction pics of the phase II University Edge apartments, and the new university bookstore, just west of YSU.  If we could get a few more projects like these, the feel of Fifth Ave. would really change!





Again, sorry for the quality.  These were taken through the dirty bus window, wile moving.  But I've been watching the progress, and only recently has there been enough light to allow any kind of photography.

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — What look like drinking fountains near the staircases in the Stambaugh Building are anything but. They’re spittoons, relics of the 19th and early 20th centuries, and they’ll remain as the building is transformed into a Hilton DoubleTree Hotel.

The historic aspects of the common spaces in the building will be fully rehabilitated. “The marble that you see around the walls is going to be taken off,” developer Dominic Marchionda says. “It’ll be restored and polished.”

Smarts Celebrates Transition into New Home
By George Nelson | June 2, 2017

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Reporters had just been handed the press release that Students Motivated by the Arts had reached its goal set a year ago of raising $750,000 when Becky Keck informed them she had something to add.

They were gathered on the first floor of the Ohio One Building to view Smarts’ new downtown home.

A few minutes earlier, Jan Strasfeld, executive director of the Youngstown Foundation, had asked Keck, “Did I tell you yet?”

Then she told Keck, executive director of Smarts, that the foundation’s Monday Musical Fund had contributed $17,000 to support the Yamaha Piano Lab in its new home, adding that sum to the total donated.

Mahoning Valley begins slow climb back
Since hitting 'bottom,' region has diversified its business bases
By RACHEL ABBEY MCCAFFERTY   

What comes to mind when someone says the Mahoning Valley?

The region's post-industrial downfall? Its shifting political alliances? The rampant opioid epidemic?

Those are all valid stories about the region. But, despite what national media coverage might lead you to believe, they're not the only stories.

The region still faces plenty of challenges, but in both Youngstown and Warren, efforts to revitalize the cities at the heart of the Mahoning Valley are underway, led by entrepreneurs opening new businesses and renovating buildings, and by neighborhood development corporations cleaning up blight.

It's taken a long time for the region to even consider rebuilding after its major manufacturing base left. After "Black Monday" in 1977, when Youngstown Sheet and Tube Co. announced thousands of layoffs, the city of Warren didn't fall into a depression overnight. It was more "gradual," said Michael D. Keys, community development director for Warren.
