On August 21, Groceries & Deli on Harmon opened at 1301 Harmon Place, Minneapolis.
Kent Thomas, one of the owners of Metro Market in Downtown’s North Loop neighborhood, has teamed up with new partners Jag Arora, Pat Burns, and Kathy and Greg Gillard. The goal is to be a fixture in the neighborhood.
Thomas, who has been in the grocery business since 1980, says, “We are dedicated to convenience, friendliness, and providing the products that the neighbors want and need in their store. Everything we do is tailored to what the area needs.”
Groceries & Deli on Harmon will offer full salad and olive bar; grab-and-go sandwiches; fresh daily pastries; muffins and cookies made fresh daily onsite; pot roast served daily; soup special daily; hot breakfast, lunch, and dinner specials.
Groceries & Deli on Harmon will offer other amenities not previously found in the area, including a full line of groceries, such as fresh vegetables and fruit, meats and cheeses, beer, ice, milk, juices, ice cream, cereals, and cigarettes. Fresh-brewed coffee will be available all day.
Arora, who will be doing much of the cooking and food selection, remarks, “We’re dedicated to serving any number of customers who are on the go, and want to eat well. We’ll mix up the menu, and also serve regular favorites. Ultimately, we are a one-stop shop for this whole part of Downtown.”
