FoodSmart

John Mourikes is co-owner of FoodSmart, a Logan Square grocery store, which has been part of the community for more than 20 years. Mourikes has observed the slow gentrification of the area through the requests of his customers. He has added organic produce next to the nonorganic versions, stocks local bakery products alongside Hostess and Wonder Bread, and sells not only Coke products but also kombucha teas.
