The original Royal Blue Grocery location on W. Third Street moved into a newly-remodeled, expanded space next door last Thursday. At 2,235 square feet, the new location is twice the size of the original store. The grand opening celebration highlighted the variety of offerings at the new location which features a full espresso bar, curated wine and beer selection, and freshly prepared foods similar to other locations.
"We are excited to finally be able to reveal a bigger, better Royal Blue for the 2nd Street District customers who have supported us for over a decade," Royal Blue partner Craig Staley said in a release. "Each of our stores is unique, tailored to the neighborhood it serves, and this expansion will do just that."
The new Royal Blue Grocery is located at 241 W. Third St. Open every day from 7 am to midnight.
