More rebranding

We used to call the little grocery on the west side of Cali Ave, halfway between Morgan & Alaska Junctions, “the so-so market.” Not as a judgment on its quality or lack of it, but because its old sign saying “50-50 Market” looked more like “So-So.”

Well, we can’t make that joke any more. West Seattle Blogger Spouse tells me it’s put up a new sign with a new name, “Juneau Street Market.”

Everybody’s trying to upscale around here. Question though, does it have … CUPCAKES?

    the 50-50 was for sale a couple months ago. Probably got new owners.

    It will always be the 50-50 in my heart.

    (maybe the name came from the 50-50 chance that they actually had something you were looking for!)

    hmmm.. maybe it is still for sale. A steal for 40k.

    “Unlimited potential with this location and business. Needs to be open 7 days a week, change its decor, add additional offerings (deli items, espresso, & variety), and needs an aggressive owner. Demographics of this area would support a more upscale and boutique style Grocery.”

    That would be a plus. But, alas, no cupcakes!

Sorry, comment time is over.
