Corner Market heads downtown

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Downtown Hattiesburg will soon have a Corner Market, after the city council approved plans to build at their Tuesday night meeting.

The new market will be located on the lot at the corner of Hardy Street and 20th Avenue, across from St. John's Lutheran Church.

This location will join five others in the area, and it will look similar to the one in Bellevue. The downtown Corner Market will have a unique addition: a dining area.

The addition of this market gives downtown residents a second option to grocery shopping. A Sunflower is just one block east of where the Corner Market will be located. The new Corner Market also provides convenience to those downtown by not requiring them to travel across Highway 49 to do their grocery shopping.

Corner Market said they hope to be open in the new location by fall of 2015.
