No one with Kwik Shop, a sister company to Dillons, returned calls for comment. But the owner of Mariam’s Quick Mart, who was forced out because of Kwik Shop’s purchase of the land, confirms it.
“It’s no big deal,” Mo Siddique says of having to leave. “It was just too much work for me.”
He also has a Mariam’s at Central and Webb.
“I’m actually glad,” Siddique says of having less work.
His store closed in December.
Siddique says Kwik Shop was supposed to start demolition this month, but that’s been put off for at least a month or so while environmental studies are done.
