Pete's General in St. Pete is now open

Pete’s General is officially opening to the public today at noon in the Historic Uptown district of St. Petersburg. 

Located at 493 Seventh Ave. N., the general store is inspired by the weekend markets in Tampa and the bodegas of New York. 

Pete's will have a limited supply of bagels until its official opening this Saturday, April 20, at 7 a.m.

Husband-and-wife owners Steven and Sara Peterman noticed a lack of walkable community markets in St. Pete, so they decided to launch their own. 

“In New York, we have a lot of bodegas and corner stores,” Steven says, “so we’re excited to bring a hyper-local version to St. Pete.”

The store is mainly grab-and-go, but outdoor seating in the form of three picnic tables, which should provide a nice view of Round Lake across the street, will accommodate customers who’d like to stay awhile.

“Our idea is to stock the market with necessities and be waste-conscious,” says Steven.
