Russo's International Market opens second location on W. Fulton



Now in its 112th year as a Grand Rapids family-owned Italian grocer, Russo’s International Market, will open a second downtown location at 241 W. Fulton. 4,500-square-foot store will feature catering, deli, grocery, delivery, curbside pick-up, and bistro on site with an indoor/outdoor bistro to boot.

 

President of Russo’s International Market, Phil Russo, says his grandfather’s mission since opening Russo’s in 1905 has always been to serve the Grand Rapids community, opening up the very first location on Division in what was then known as “Little Italy,” and later expanding into its current 18,000-square-foot location at 2270 29th Street.

 

“We always knew we would return to our roots and this second location will allow us to serve the downtown community as we once did 112 years ago,” says Russo.

 

Both locations offer catering for events and business meetings, custom corporate gifts, alcohol and grocery delivery, European deli, local Michigan and Grand Rapids products, extensive wine and beer selections, in-store educational events, private label Russo brand products, both dine-in and to-go menus, coffee, a espresso and cappuccino bar, and a gelato bar.

 

“The Grand Rapids community has been so devoted to our family-business throughout the years, and our goal is to continue to serve the community to the best of our ability,” says Russo. “We realized the lack of offerings for downtown residents, and this gave us the opportunity to return to downtown Grand Rapids and serve the growing residential population.”
