Special Neighborhood Meeting August 16th

T&T Bar, 4691 Hawthorne Street

4691 Hawthorne St.

To the neighbors who live in the area of Hawthorne and Margaret Street near the old TNT bar.   The new owners wish to open a grocery store at that location.  We met with them several months ago about the opening.  Many neighbors had concerns about what will be coming to this corner. There will be a special meeting to address the concerns of the neighbors.

The meeting will be held on Thursday August 16, 2012 at 7 PM at ARIA health Center, the old Frankford Hospital second-floor lunchroom.  The owners will be present to answer any questions. Please tell your neighbors to attend. Their voice is valuable.

For more information you may contact Pete Specos president Frankford Civic 267-738-3103
