Best Convenience Store

Grizzly Grocery

In a time and place where local and organic food win out, the term “convenience store” isn’t always the sexiest category to be in. Lacey Marquesen, who took over as owner of Grizzly Grocery last year, gets it. Over the past several months she’s added more organic produce and artisan products to the shelves and switched over to serving local joe from Black Coffee Roasting Company. The store is a longtime winner because the previous owners had already created a neighborhood market feel, even adding the coffee and deli shop just before selling. Marquesen is continuing the tradition. It’s a place of convenience, but one that doesn’t feel like just a pit stop. Grizzly Grocery • 447 Hill St • 721-2679 •
