Perly’s to get in the market business

A market to complement the deli.

Perly’s reopened in June under the leadership of local restauranteurs Johnny Giavos, Kevin Roberts, and developer Scott Coleman. These gentlemen aren’t satisfied with providing pierogi and bagels, now they hope to satisfy a small market niche at 109 E. Grace Street.

Richmond has the details.

The yet unnamed market will sell beer, wine, coffee, meat, bread and prepared foods from Perly’s Restaurant and Delicatessen next door at 111 E. Grace St. Giavos, Roberts and Coleman reopened Perly’s in June after it abruptly went out of business in 2013.

Coleman said part of the reason for expansion was to prevent the vacant space next to Perly’s from attracting competition.

“We decided to make a play on it,” Coleman said. “We thought, ‘What could we put there that would complement Perly’s?’”

Unrelated to this story is this Tumblr post by SCHNEIDERAF which features pictures that capture the “old diner” feel of Perly’s.
