This is Joy, the manager of the Fernandina General Store that will be opening very soon in the old Bank of America building on Centre Street, two blocks from Fairbanks House.  Just think of it as a downtown grocery with a deli in the back from which you can eat in or take out.  When I stopped by I saw a nice wine display going in too.  There are a couple of places in town for people to just pick up a bottle of wine but Joy tells me that the hours of the store will be 7am to 10pm seven days a week.  Let me just say, YAY.  That will work well for locals and visitors, alike.  I’ll let you know when it opens.

P.S.  Sorry to be off the airwaves for a bit now – we got unexpectedly very busy over the last week and a half.  Again, let me just say, YAY.

Update 10/11/10 – The General Store is now open.
