This storefront comes right at you as you pass it on Fourth Avenue with a rush of letters, colors and lights. The goodies to be found inside are as equally extolled on the western and southern sides of the shop as they are at the corner. I do love a place that hawks the cardinal corner-store attractions of yesteryear: Candies, Sodas, Ice Cream, Cigarettes, Newpaper, Magazines, Cold Beer. All the easily had things you need to make you happy.
Details of the old facade are still visible around the door. But the most wonderful things about the storefront are hidden on the sides of the main sign.
On one side you have a giant image of the iconic New York "We Are Pleased to Serve You" cup. On the other, a one of a kind, homemade image of a giant Pepsi can, surrounded by lots of little, adoring cans.
Oh, and you can't discount the fact that Park Slope Grocery has made an adjective part of their name. They are a "Convenient" Store. Is that sort of like an Appetizing Store?
