UPDATE: Convenience Store Given Go-Ahead to Open at Depot

The new "A Mart" store should open mid-Spring, according to City Manager Graham Mitchell.

The Lemon Grove city council unanimously approved this week the addition of a convenience store to the Lemon Grove Depot.

City Manager Graham Mitchell tells Lemon Grove Patch that the council voted 5-0 Tuesday night in favor of adopting a resolution to approve the agreements for the new store.

The store will be called "A Mart" and is slated to open mid-Spring, he said.

The business has submitted building plans for the new shop, however artist renderings weren't immediately available, he told Patch.

The lease agreement with the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System will run through Dec. 2018, and will generate $2,400 for the city in the first year, according to city reports.

The MTA will be required to pay the City $200 per month, pay for interior and exterior utilities, provide the minor maintenance to the interior and exterior of the building, pay for the tenant improvements, offer fresh fruits and vegetables as well as other healthy food and beverage options, according to a staff report.

A great idea with healthy options, too!
