The Kinnickinnic Avenue Business Improvement District will soon be home to Bumstead Provisions, a rustic new grocery store, restaurant and bar with an emphasis on locally-sourced craft beer and food, according to 14th District Alderman Tony Zielinski.

Slated to open in September, Alderman Zielinski said Bumstead Provisions will occupy the space vacated by ReThreads Clothing and a hardware store at 2671 and 2675 S. Kinnickinnic Ave. Customers will have the options of shopping for spreads, oils, sauces, chocolates and more, or enjoying a seasonal selection of small plates and artisan sandwiches from the kitchen and deli.

Owners Devin Eichler and Mike Bodow, the creative team behind Crafty Cow in Oconomowoc, said they chose Bay View after doing extensive market research. “The Bay View neighborhood just has this vibe—it just feels right,” Bodow said.

“What we’re hoping for in Bay View is similar excitement for this very new, very different concept,” Eichler added.

To execute their vision, the owners have hired Braatz Building, the builders of Lulu Café and Goodkind in Milwaukee. Eichler and Bodow have also decided to utilize designer Libby Castro and her world-renowned LP/w Design Studios, which is responsible for creating the interiors of Milwaukee establishments C. 1880 and Vanguard.

Eichler and Bodow said that Alderman Zielinski has been instrumental in their decision to locate the new business in the Bay View area, welcoming them with open arms.

“Bumstead Provisions will be an excellent addition to the Bay View neighborhood, which seems to have an endless appetite for the kind of creative fare and vibrant atmosphere that this new business will provide,” Alderman Zielinski said.
