Downtown auto body shop may be site of grocery store

Rochester Business Journal
January 9, 2014

Plans for a former automotive repair shop downtown are expected to be announced in the next week. City officials have said plans call for a downtown grocery store at the site, but further details have not been released.

Burch Craig, owner of the now defunct Craig Autometrics Inc., wrote on the company website that the building where the shop was located at 10 Winthrop St. will be sold by Jan. 31.

He added that the new owners—who have yet to be named—will be making an announcement about the property within the next week.

Craig Autometrics closed for business Dec. 1 when Craig decided to retire after 33 years in business, the website states.

Winthrop Street runs parallel to North Union Street, between East Avenue and Charlotte Street. The site is near The Little and Restaurant 2Vine.
