In July 2017, Bham Now reported on the GoFundMe campaign of Donnie Goodin, aka “The Candy Man.”
If you live in Birmingham, you have met Donnie Goodin, aka “The Candy Man.”
After years of planning, in early October, the venerable Western Market on Culver Road, moved to its new home.
Perhaps, we were expecting the new Western Market in Mountain Brook to be much like the old one – a little cramped and small compared to most big box supermarkets. The old Western had that wonderful “neighborhood feel” without too many frills.
The new Western Market, which is located in the new Lane Parke development behind and near the old Western, is the exact opposite. It is spacious and modern. It has an upstairs dining area, that will become a destination for friends, families and business people to meet. The murals and the signage are eye-popping.
