Food mart was just one stage in the life cycle of this corner storefront. Today it's a base of operations for no-frills auto repair, "flat fix" a specialty. And prior to its grocery days, before one could buy soda, beer, and sandwiches, the stock in trade included beepers and records, according to the old text reemerging on the awning.
On the wall in the distance — look above the young lady in the blue hijab — a sign for a seemingly much older and unrelated business proclaims that "We Certainly [something] at the Bronx [something] Store". What was on offer? Your guess is as good as mine.
