The Frankies have at long last expanded their empire into retail territory, reports Brownstoner. The storefront next door to Prime Meats — on the Luquer Street side — now bears signage for Prime Meats Delicat-essen & Provisions (yes, that hyphen is intentional). The deli case is full of sausages and the shelves are lined with pantry supplies, including Frankies-branded olive oil — so now if you’re fed up with the wait at Prime Meats, you can throw in the towel, pop in next door, and make your own damn dinner. When it debuts (“soon”), the shop will be open Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., and weekends from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. [Brownstoner]
