New Polish Grocery Market For South Side
Immigrant-run grocery store opening at Howell and Howard in Tippecanoe neighborhood.
A new, Polish grocery store is planned for Milwaukee’s South Side.
Both are immigrants to America. “Wioletta has been dreaming about this for a few years, and we felt the timing was just right,” said Adam in an interview with Urban Milwaukee.
The store will be operated by Wioletta, who previously ran a few grocery stores in Poland. Adam said there’s “always a need” for markets like this one.
Adam and Wioletta plan to open Wioletta’s Polish Market on March 1. Once open, the market would be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday.
The building used to hold Tippecanoe True Value Hardware, but the store closed more than five years ago. The grocery store will occupy the approximately 2,800-square-foot retail space.
A three-bedroom apartment is included on a partial second floor. The property is owned by David Sterling.
