Healthy Choice, the deli-market that we've been writing about in recent months, is scheduled to open today on the SW corner of Avenue A and Sixth Street. (Updated: They did NOT open today as planned. Updated 2: Certified open as of Jan. 19.)
EVG contributor Stacie Joy got a look inside over the weekend...
As you can see, there's a variety of breakfast options, sandwiches, burgers and other items on the menu (click on the image for more detail) ...
Management was still determining the hours of operation. Will update when those are set.
This is the first retail tenant for the corner space since Benny's Burritos closed here on Nov. 29, 2014.
Workers are installing the signage on the new market coming to the SW corner of Avenue A and Sixth Street — say hi to (if we're reading this correctly) Healthy Choice Foods Market. (Perhaps they will be just Healthy Choice for short?)
Work continues over at 93 Avenue A at Sixth Street (aka the former home of Benny's Burritos).

As we reported on Nov. 1, a deli is coming to this storefront. What kind of deli? We don't know! Maybe ones that keep popping up selling beers and bongs... or maybe one that has a decent sandwich that isn't bedecked with, say, artisanal Beaufort d'été.
Benny's closed here on Nov. 29, 2014, after 27 years in business. And what will happen to those Benny's awnings?
