Burlington City Councilors unanimously voted to send necessary zoning changes to the Ordinance Committee which would allow City Market/Onion River Co-Op to open up a 2nd store on the corner of Flynn Avenue and Briggs Street in the South End of Burlington near Oakledge Park. The main reason for opening another store in the same city is to alleviate the pressure in the busy downtown store which opened in 2002 and has limited parking. The co-op's general manager says they hope to break ground in June 2016 and open the new store in June 2017. The new store will be 1/3 larger than the downtown store and they expect $12 million in sales during their first year.
