Building Of 4th Street Market Goes Up For Sale

The future of the 4th Street Market in Duluth may be in jeopardy. Two months ago, the grocery store and deli was informed by the building’s owner — the Zeppa Foundation — that they were looking to sell the space.

Tom Potter, who owns the market, tells FOX 21his initial offer to buy the building was rejected.

Potter says the building owner has been working with him to keep the market in the hillside neighborhood, but they are now looking for financial help from the community to stay in business.

“We are still trying to save this grocery — this neighborhood grocery store. We’re not the ones looking to walk out or close up. We’re trying to do everything in our power to keep it a neighborhood grocery store,” Potter said.

According to Potter, the market has been at its current location for more than 40 years and says many people in the neighborhood without transportation depend on the store for groceries.
