Tallahassee officials have confirmed the redevelopment of a second large property along North Monroe Street. A Boca Raton-based developer has its eyes on an Albertson’s supermarket, vacated long ago.

Largely a result of a messy company reorganization and mounting pressure from competitors like Publix, grocery chain Albertson’s was essentially crowded out of the Florida market in the early 2000s. Tallahassee lost its last Albertson’s in 2005 with the closure of a North Monroe Street location.

On the east side of Tallahassee Mall, just past the food court, stands a little urban clothing store called Top Fashion. It’s a weekday morning and the mall is almost vacant. Store owner Bonnie Harsanyi mans the register while one of her employees restocks some of the store shelves. Bonnie’s been in business in for about a year.

“It takes a year – just by now people are starting to know me. Got to know this town. You know, try to survive,” Harsanyi said.

After building relationships with her customers they started to ask for a particular type of merchandise.
