The first grocery on the Southside in decades is changing its name and its focus.
Enzo's Market will close June 7, then be transformed to the Grocery Bar.
Chris Lykins said it will feature pantry items as well as an array of ready-to-eat foods.
He said, "As an important part of the community that has supported Enzo's Market, I wanted to tell you personally about the changes that are coming over the course of the next few weeks at our neighborhood grocery store on the Southside.
"I also wanted to invite you to participate in our community survey and to help us spread the word about the new store that we'll be opening at the end of June.
"We’re excited to share some details about the changes ahead. We’re transforming the store to offer a chef-curated collection of groceries. We're adding house-made pantry staples, along with a whole new menu of ready-to-eat, prepared foods.
"We’re calling the new store…Grocery Bar. Inside the new Grocery Bar on Main Street you will find a juice bar, coffee bar, butcher bar, cheese bar, sandwich bar, pizza bar, hot bar, and raw bar. And there will be friendly, informed Grocery Bar “tenders” to guide you through your experience.

"To accomplish the launch, Enzo’s will be closed after June 7th to do remodeling, to taste recipes and to bring in new inventory. The goal is to open a whole new store at the end of the month!
