Jackson Market is the new name at 728 Dudley St
but that's not all that's new.

 We spoke with the owner, Jose Silverio.  He and his assistant, Eladio Reyes, have been welcoming customers and visitors for about a week.

After he bought the store Jose made major changes to the layout.  "Why," I asked, "have you made so many changes?"  His answers strongly reflect his attitude about life.

He cares about people, and whether he is in conversation with a friend or helping a customer, his attitude is the same.  He wants to be of service, he wants you to feel that you are special, he wants to build a relationship with you and he wants you as a permanent friend.

Jose did not feel comfortable with the prior layout.  He said it was too hard to find what you're looking for and too easy to get lost in the aisles. 

"What can I do," he wondered, " to make my merchandise easier to find and to create a pleasurable experience in the store while shopping?" By relocating the shelves and coolers along the outside walls, he created a large open space in the center.  It's now so easy to see  where everything is in the store. 

In fact while we were there, we heard a customer say to her husband: "It's so much bigger than before."   [Story & Photos]
