This is one of those buildings that just feels like it used to be a supermarket. However, it looks like I'm wrong here. I can't find any evidence that this building ever was a grocery store, using and Groceteria's Norfolk list (and that includes searching alternate addresses on the streets that surround the property, just in case the "front" of the property has changed over time). The only hole is that Groceteria's list is chain stores, and it's always possible this 17,000 square foot, pitched-roof building was an independent grocer. I mean, one could be forgiven for thinking this was a supermarket, right? Either way, we're headed north of downtown tomorrow for two stores in the Ghent neighborhood, both over on The Market Report!
