G.B. Russo & Son Ltd. plans to open its 4,500-square-foot downtown location this weekend.

GRAND RAPIDS — G.B. Russo & Son Ltd. plans to open its 4,500-square-foot downtown location this weekend.

The Grand Rapids-based grocery store and deli retailer announced today that its store at 241 W. Fulton St. will open at 7:30 a.m. this Saturday.

The downtown store is Russo’s second location, with its main operations located on 29th Street SE in Grand Rapids.

The company recently rebranded as Russo’s International Market.

The Fulton Street location, previously home to a shuttered Bagger Dave’s Burger Tavern, will offer a menu consisting of sandwiches, pizza and salads, as well as deli, to-go items, beer and wine and a coffee shop, according to a statement. Certain toiletries and home goods products also will be available.

“The Grand Rapids community has been so devoted to our family business throughout the years, and our goal is to continue to serve the community to the best of our ability,” Phil Russo, president of Russo’s International Market, said in a statement. “We realized the lack of offerings for downtown residents, and want to meet this demand.”
