Shorty’s Market on Short Street Closing Down

Shorty’s Market on Short Street Closing Down


supermarketShorty’s, the Urban Market on 163 West Short Street, is closing down Saturday, five years after the original ribbon cutting.

Shorty’s had already closed once in September 2013, but it reopened in January 2014, just in time to save us from the grocery-less downtown abyss caused when the Euclid Kroger closed down for the rooftop parking remodeling project.

The future of the Shorty’s space, which was formerly occupied by a bank, is unknown, but based on recent developments, we wouldn’t be surprised for it to reopen as a nano-mini-microbrewery.
