Pete’s Fruit Market, a family business with a prominent location on Milwaukee’s south side, announced Sunday it will be opening a new store in the City’s Bronzeville neighborhood.

Pete’s will open at a fully remodeled, former Walgreens site on the northwest corner of Dr. Martin Luther King Drive and North Avenue. The store will fill approximately 13,700 square feet of space, and the anticipated opening date is late 2016.

“We are ecstatic to be coming to the Bronzeville community and serving the residents of Bronzeville and surrounding neighborhoods,” Director of Operations Rob Heotis of Pete’s Fruit Market said. “It is our family’s pleasure to provide over fifty years of experience in the produce and grocery industry to a community that deserves food security and healthy and economical food choices.”
