Photo: Joining forces: 320 Store welcomes meat market

Joining resources: Dennis Bragelman and Benny Salamone stand in the new section of Bragelman’s 320 Store at 320 N. Court St., in Rockford. Salamone’s Market, 727 Kent St., closed recently and re-opened here to provide a fine selection of meats (Italian sausage!), Italian groceries and sandwiches to complement the amazing selection of organic produce and other specialty foods at the 320 Store. The 320 Store’s lunch-time buffet is already famous for its amazing homemade dishes, salads and desserts. Now, Salamone’s bring their fame to expand the fare. Stop by and you might have the privilege to meet Benny and his Ma, Carmella. Dennis’ good humor is always welcoming, too! This place is truly a Rockford treasure. They are open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Call (815) 965-2313. (Photo by Frank Schier)
