Revitalization effort under way

"We found a niche," Namer said. "We rely on quality, fair prices and personal service. We try to treat every day like it's our opening day."

The Namers are carrying on a family tradition. Their parents, Fred and Anne Namer, operated The Little Store on Cossey Street in the 1950s and 60s. The brothers - Gary, Joe and Fred - all worked at grocery stores before opening Two Brothers.
