O’Neill’s Market recently mentioned something about “remodeling” on its Facebook page, which piqued our interest since we regard ourselves as unabashed fans and customers of this charming old-school neighborhood grocer.
According to owner Mike O’Neill, the market will simply be responding to the demands of its market. The major work will take place behind the scenes, but customers will see a few changes as well.
Mike tells GlensideLocal that catering now accounts for an increasing amount of its business, which requires more prep space than the store currently accommodates. Removing and relocating a walk-in cooler to the back of the store outside will give them this space.
In the process, they also plan to replace and move around some of its refrigeration equipment which will improve the efficiency of the store’s layout, allow the store to offer hot prepared foods, and clear more space for its Irish foods section.
Mike says the work should be completed just after Labor Day.
