Opening of new South Boston market delayed when it catches fire

The Boston Fire Department reports a two-alarm fire damaged Foodies, 230 W. Broadway, only a couple weeks before the store was due to bring gourmet food to South Boston.

The fire, reported around 11:10 a.m., started in the basement, but traveled to the roof of the former American Nut building. Sprinklers activated, sending water into the electrical system. There were no injuries.

    Certainly Not Free Range

    The sprinkler system seems to have penned it in so that it couldn't turn around.

    Yeah because businesses that cater to the wants of a community are such a bad thing.

    Go suck on a free range quail egg, hater. The rest of us in Southie want more of this, less fucking Dollar Store and 7-11.

    I'm not one toot a stores horn, especially an over priced one like Foodies.

    However, I lived near the Foodies in the SoEnd. I wouldn't do my full shopping there but when I really needed something and I didn't wanna be raped by Shaw's, I'd go here.

    For a small-ish store they did have a good selection of general groceries, and it wasn't all Whole Foods Crunchy. More of just an upscale neighborhood market. Yeah its pricey, again I wouldn't want to do my main food shopping here, but for a decent selection and "I gotta have it now", its great.

    I should add, they did have an awesome hot and cold foods area (deli salads, sandwiches, hot foods, a la carte fresh-chilled food). If you're single, and tired of eating out, this is a good substitution for home cooked food.

    if it wasn't for these Asian and Arab owned businesses, these storefronts would have been turned into some overpriced condos years ago.
