This is the classic single-crew grocery; the crew is one grocer. In this instance, the grocery is roughly 500 square feet. No, it doesn’t stock 35 brands of hot sauce, but it does stock Tabasco. And this tiny grocery converts its entire neighborhood from a food desert where everyone would have to drive for food into a nourished place. Note the building to the left: it’s the grocer’s home, making this a “live-beside” type of live/work unit.
