West Seattle businesses: Corner Store and Deli’s first day

It’s the first official day of business for the new Corner Store and Deli in The Triangle at 36th/Fauntleroy next to Jones Barbeque, in the space that was long known as Tervo’s. The store is remodeled inside and out, most notably, adding a Boar’s Head deli setup for fresh sandwiches:

That’s Daniel Gebrechristos, Corner Store co-owner with brother Negash (who we interviewed in August, when we got first word of the ownership change/reopening plan). Daniel designed the renovations too, and says that as the business gets established, they’ll probably make some changes to its entryway, too. For now, if you go in today, you’ll notice some empty space – they’re still ramping up the stock, and they’ll be putting in chairs/tables by the new Fauntleroy-fronting windows. Daniel invites the neighborhood to come in, say hi, and try food samples this Saturday and Sunday, 10 am-4 pm both days. (Their regular hours, he says, are 6:30 am-10 pm daily.)

    I’m curious about the Ethiopian coffee mentioned when you first covered this. Is it happening yet?

      Johnny B, they have coffee. It is in dispensers over by the door, including an “automatic” espresso machine. I am sorry I didn’t write down the brand but it looked to be fairly standard corner-market coffee – somebody who stops in, please check for us and advise if otherwise. I didn’t do the original interview – Keri met co-owner Negash and wrote the story – so I don’t know if there was a nuance missed in there somewhere, but for now, that’s the coffee service they have – TR

    Wow, so amazing. Tervo’s has always been a staple of the WS landscape. I’m so happy to see that it has been renovated and not terminated! Best of luck!!

    Just how I like my deli, with bars on the front. So inviting…

    • WSB October 11, 2011 (1:45 am)

      That’s part of what they hope to remodel next. They at least got rid of the similarly uninviting Fauntleroy frontage, for starters.

    Any word on why the “O, N, S, T & I” in the signage were left white while the others are green? Just a decorative decision, technical difficulties, secret code?

    Welcome to West Seattle! I know the owners personally and I have to say they are great when it comes to customer service. This is their second store. they have a well established one in first hill. This will be established well soon, Great work Daniel, your handy work changed not only the store but the neighboorhood. Good luck and fruitful years ahead.
