The Shop Agora opens second location in Capitol Hill today

August 4th, 2011 · Comments

The Shop Agora, at 6417-A Phinney Ave. N., is opening its second location on Capitol Hill today. The new store, at 346 15th Ave. E., is much larger than the Phinney store.

In addition to packaged Mediterranean foods, it also has a wine bar, kitchen and much larger deli.

Owners Alexis Saloutos and Nikos Spiliopoulos are celebrating with a grand opening party from 6-10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. The Shed Boys will play live music on Friday evening.

The Shop Agora on Capitol Hill will be open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.

The Phinney Ridge location of The Shop Agora will be open Saturday as usual, but will not host a wine tasting.

    Yep, you got it Toomuch Money – they are now Safeway. Way to support the local guy trying to grow a little so he can finally have a little bar and have a kitchen in his place.

    This is the kind of the passive aggressive nonsense that make people crazy about this town.
