New owner plans grocery store for former Frankford bar where fatal shooting occurred

The Frankford community is once again confronted by the issue of the property at 4691 Hawthorne St., which was formerly the T&T bar.

The T&T was the scene of the murder of Chris Spence last winter, and a new owner has taken over the property with the intention of opening a grocery store.  A zoning petition has been filed, and therefore, support (or lack thereof) from the Frankford Civic Association will be considered before the use can be approved.

Because of community concerns, a meeting is being planned within the next few weeks at the Second Baptist Church at 1801 Meadow St.  The civic will follow the will of the community, as is determined at that meeting.
