A new grocery store opened in Albany’s South End earlier this week, where a McDonald’s used to be.

South End Grocery is South Pearl Street. It has hot and cold food, along with fresh fruits and vegetables.

The grocery store was part of a year-long effort to take that part of Albany out of a “food desert.”
