Not long after we noticed a broader selection of cheese (including gorgonzola) did we notice large-scale renovations taking place at Papas & Son's.
Owner Francisco, who was featured on NPR not too long ago as a store owner seeking to ride the wave of gentrification, is turning in old dilapidated shelving for new ones. Workmen could be seen ripping up the floors inside the store this weekend.
Hats off to Francisco. Though some have doubted him, we think that his slow and steady approach to remaking his store will pay off. Big time.
Pictured above is Papas' old facade. We don't have a newer picture immediately available - so use this one to compare and contrast with what you see on your way home tonight.
