Ace, the charmingly cluttered old school supermarket that's been situated on the corner of Seventh Avenue and Berkeley Street since the 1960s, is finally getting a major renovation. Work has been been underway for over a week now, and should be all done within a couple months.
According to the owner, the entire market will be overhauled, redesigned, and modernized. They'll begin making sandwiches to order (from a new deli section), start selling flowers, fresh fruits and vegetables, and generally bring the place into the 21st century (new floors, shelves, etc). The windows will also be cleaned, so more natural sunlight will be allowed in. And best of all, it'll be open 24/7.
No word yet on whether that classic sign will be sticking around.
