New life at the old Wally’s

02/12/2014 1:25 PM by

There are new windows and paint on the long-vacant storefront at 2125 Fairmount Avenue, with no indication of what might be in the works. Anybody got anything?

The store was the location of several fatal shootings in the early 1990s as the Fairmount Grocery Store and Kim’s Market. The violence spread into the blocks and alleys around the store on Fairmount Avenue and 22nd Street, and it has only been in the past five years that violence and prostitution in the vicinity really dropped off.

The building was listed for sale for $180,000 last August.
