Renovation Work on Former Manzella's Underway

Renovation work has begun on the building that housed the former Manzella's Fruit Market for a new tenant.

City officials have confirmed that crews have started the renovation of the former Manzella's Fruit Market for an expanded Dollar General.

The building has been vacant since July 2011 when the fruit market closed. In early August, city officials announced Dollar General will move from the current location on Little Mack to the vacant Manzella's Fruit Market on Harper.

An opening date has not been set.

Well, now we have a dollar store across the street from a dollar store. We have become a community of dollar stores, gas stations and burger joints. Why not have tried to solicit Trader Joe's or Whole Foods or another produce market? Manzella's was an oasis at the north end of the Shores. I guess we'll just let Nino have a monopoly.
