Bayview Mercantile set to reopen at end of the month

BAYVIEW - Visitors and residents can pick up that jug of milk soon.

The Bayview Mercantile, the community's only store, is scheduled to reopen at the end of this month.

It has been a long winter without one of the community's core businesses, residents and business owners said. The mercantile, located at 34135 W. Main Ave., closed abruptly last fall.

New owners Tim and Deb Zabawa have been busy cleaning and making updates to the building, including replacing the electrical, installing insulation and spraying on a fresh coat of paint. The Zabawas purchased the building two months ago, after it went to foreclosure.

"We had to put in a larger fishing section, because I'm an avid fisherman," Tim Zabawa said at the store Thursday. "We've doubled the size of the walk-in cooler."

The business will be a change of pace for Zabawa, who has been working as a tree-trimmer. The mercantile became available and he took a chance. More here. David Cole, CdA Press
