Pizazz Corner Market Open
Pizazz opened their Corner Market this week. They sold out of sandwiches, salads, enchilada casseroles and other fresh offerings. They’re asking for feedback about the market, special requests, special orders or anything else.
The corner market is in the former Fox’s jewelry space on the corner of Central Avenue and 4th Street.
In the space, they’re offering take-n-go deli, selling local and international foods and spices plus wine, beer, spirits, even a few beers on tap.
“We are committed to being “green” and reducing our plastic use. So we’ll serve salads in Mason jars, etc.,” according to Rhonda Atkins, chief cook at Pizazz.
Like their oil and vinegar, there will be an initial $3 bottle/jar fee that will be discounted when you come back for a refill.
The corner market includes:
- Exotic spices;
- Oil and vinegars;
- Wine, with a wine tasting room; beer and spirits; $5 glasses of wine or beer on tap;
- $2 cups of coffee of the month;
- mini deli with select charcuterie, cheese and olives;
- market flower bunches by My Viola;
- and take-n-go food, including gourmet sandwiches, mason jar salads, homemade ravioli, pesto, quiches, lasagna, bone broth and more (selection will vary depending on what the kitchen has got cooking); as well as Indian foods from Saibeen’s Kitchen.
Scheels purchased the former Christian bookstore next door in Holiday Village Mall and is expanding into the space and creating more inviting and spacious fitting rooms that some of the newer stores have started including.
With the additional space, things have been moving around within the current walls to maximize space and create a more efficient flow, according to Scheels staff.
These shifts are a series of progressive moves that started with a new arcade and the moving of merchandise on the north end of the store and will continue throughout the store until the projects completion, according to Scheels staff.
