New Grocery Store and Ice Cream Parlor Coming to River District

Posted:

Danville, VA - Folks in downtown Danville have something to look forward to in the next couple of months: a new grocery store and ice cream parlor.

It will be the only one in River District. 

Sarwat Ata bought the Old Fellows Building on South Ridge Street back in October. Renovations are underway to transform it into South Ridge Street Grocery.

In addition to a grocery store and ice cream spot, it will be a place to get Middle Eastern foods and fresh meat. 

The owner chose the building because of its close proximity to senior housing. 

"On my right, these are apartments where elderly people live. Most of them don't have transportation. They have a hard time going to grocery stores," said Ata. 

The store is expected to have its grand opening in March.
