A small grocery store called Dona Mart has opened on the corner of Kenilworth Avenue and 14th Street.
The 68-year-old building that previously had several shops had been closed for two years, according to mysuburbanlife.com.
The brand new store has everything for daily life, including food, drinks, tobacco, calling cards and toiletry items. Additionally, the owner put in a new handicap-accessible bathroom, repaired the electrical system and installed a new egress window for emergency access. More work is planned to be done the following spring, Berwyn Assistant City Administrator Evan Summers said.
Eli Grocery Store and Markham’s Food Shop had previously occupied the building until Dona Mart had opened Jan. 19 this year. It is located at 1400 Kenilworth Ave., which is closer to the neighborhood than most of the other stores on Roosevelt Rd.
