Fancy corner store: Sonya's Market going upscale?
This is an interesting phenomenon though, the usually mostly identical corner stores starting to change their selections to reflect the neighborhood. I would guess we'll continue to see more of this sort of specialization and adaptation. This sort of thing happened on U Street too, where the Best DC Supermarket went from being your average, drab independent supermarket to getting refurbished and selling fancier items as the clientele in the area changed.
I wrote about Sonya's before in my Beer Run series, where I check out the beer selection of corner stores. They were a bit high then too.
