Willy Street Co-op in talks on Pierce's Northside site

Local grocery cooperative Willy Street Co-op is in talks to open a new location at 2817 N. Sherman Ave., the current site of Pierce's Northside Market.

To date, the co-op has not signed a lease on the site and the plans are not finalized. Willy Street Co-op owners approved pursuing a third retail site in August 2014.

The end date of Pierce’s lease on this site has not been announced, but it will likely be early this summer. With talks ongoing, an opening date for a possible Willy Street Co-op location is not yet set.

If a deal is reached, the co-op would aim to open at the site as soon as possible, according to co-op Communications Director Brendon Smith.
