The Reinvention of Grocery Stores

How many of you have been in Downtown Urban areas and thought, if there was a grocery store in walking distance I’d be set? I have been in many walkable cities where they seemed to have everything I needed, except for a close place to get fresh produce or specialty items. The demographic of those living in complex in urban areas, are the same demographic that want the type of products carried at stores like The Fresh Market and Whole Foods. Here in the Triangle and in other up and coming cities, there has been total reinvention of grocery stores in urban locations to fill this void for urban residents.

Well-known (and normally huge) grocery chains are beginning to come up with smaller solutions that make sense for walkable locations. We have all seen a Walmart Express a time or two, but now large chains are getting super inventive.

For example, Dollar General recently unveiled its new DGX,a  smaller format store,, to serve busy, metropolitan shoppers with everyday low prices on the essentials they need in a convenient, easy-to-shop format. The store even features items not typically found in quick-trip stores including a carefully-edited assortment of home, electronics and seasonal offerings. Dollar General made cool again. I am here for it. The Raleigh location has been extremely successful. Not only is it a fresh and new concept for the area, but services the quick needs of those who are on-the-go.

There are also many new market concept locations popping up in cities Raleigh and Durham. Weaver Street Market, which started in Carrboro, NC, is now opening a Raleigh location in January of 2019. The 12,600-square-foot store will be located at The Dillon. Weaver Street Market is a worker- and consumer-owned cooperative selling natural and organic food with a focus on local and fair trade products. Weaver St. prides itself on being “community owned” and hosts many community wide events.

In Durham, Bulldega Market is opening. Bulldega is a family owned and operated grocery store that will be located in the heart of downtown Durham across the street from City Hall. This market will provide access to local produce and humanely raised meat, along with those everyday household items that you can’t live without. One driving value of this family market is healthy, sustainable eating at accessible prices. They will also have ready-to-eat lunches for a quick bite or those taking their lunch break.

These unique chain store spin-offs and family owned markets with a passion for local, have completely revitalized the grocery options for those in developing cities. Fresh, local food has been much needed for Downtown areas and I can’t wait to see these concepts flourish.
