Corner store at 13th and Otis gets an upgrade: coffee bar, lots more wine, craft beer, fancier interior

Convenience store at 13th and Otis

Looks like the Thirteenth Street Market at the corner of 13th and Otis is going upscale: I recently visited to pick up some stuff and noticed it's had some big upgrades: there's a new coffee bar with all the fixins, nice new wood shelves, an entire wall of wine, and a whole lot more craft beer.

The store's owner (who is a really nice lady) said there was a lot more demand for this kind of thing lately, and she looked to add some more to the store as well.

It's interesting to see the change in focus of some of our local markets to reflect the changes in population, and this seems like a good fit for the area, as there isn't much else around with the wine or coffee.

Lion's is going upscale as well with a wine bar at Otis and Georgia Ave. It will be really large and the renovations look awesome so far:

I love the new 13th Street Market, but it has been closed now since Superbowl weekend. Any idea what happened?

My buddy who lives nearby said they're on vacation. I'll look for more details.
