This will be the last official weekend for the legendary Bell’s Market to be open before a major construction project begins.
The project consists of the demolition of the existing single story structure occupying the site and the construction of a 5-story mixed use building with approx. 7835 square feet of ground floor retail space, 32 residential units, and 23 off-street parking spaces.
Owner George Khoury expects to reopen a new and improved Bell’s in roughly 12-18 months. Bell’s Market has been a family owned business in South Boston since the early 1900’s when it was opened by the original owner, Sam Bell. The market sells groceries, beer, wine and is known for its butcher counter.
