Once again, Madison's south side may be left without a grocery store

Fighting the Park Street grocery gap. (Capital Times, 4/16/2019)
If the Pick ‘n Save, located just north of the Madison Labor Temple, is demolished by the end of this year, as planned, to make way for a new SSM Health clinic, it will leave the south Madison neighborhood surrounding it without a full-service grocery store. The nearest full-service grocery store is Festival Foods on East Washington Avenue. It’s 3.5 miles away, over a half-hour by bus.

Not sure why SSM Medical needs the Pick 'n Save site in the first place.
