Plans for Jimmy's Market "Abandoned" 

Jimmy Lewis, former owner of the much-missed health-food store Squash Blossom, has announced that he will not open Jimmy's Market as originally planned.

Jimmy's Market would have been located at Poplar and Evergreen at the Burke's Book Store site. The store was scheduled to open in 2008.

According to an email sent out by Lewis, there were three factors in this decision: construction costs, high operating costs, and the recent purchase of the Wild Oats chain by Whole Foods.
