Despite chain convenience stores forcing many traditional corner stores to close, Travers Food Market in Lansdowne has withstood the test of time and is still going strong after three decades, writes Kevin Tustin for the Daily Times.

The community-centered store opened on May 22, 1986 and brothers Dave and Fred Travers will celebrate their 30 years in business with different events and free food samples for customers.

Located at 199 Shadeland Ave., the store has had to change its layout over the years, expanding its deli counter to serve its growing clientele. Today, Travers Food Market serves close to 300 customers a day and nearly 1,000 breakfast sandwiches each month.

Dave’s wife, Donna, is in charge of the market’s cooking. The sandwiches, sweet treats, and meals that the store is now known for, have been praised by many people as a delicious alternative to fast food.

“The customers are what’s keeping us open,” said Donna, adding that the store succeeds by trying “to be a member of the community.“
