Close your eyes and tilt your head back; imagine this: you’re sitting in a barber’s chair getting one of the best haircuts of your life.
You know the kind –– when you feel like a new person after. You hurry to the car and give yourself a flirtatious wink in the mirror. The kind of wink that says, “hello world, here’s the new me.”
Well, if that sounds familiar or appealing, take a trip to the new Neighborhood Market at 503 Martin Luther King Blvd in Opelika.
The “one stop shop” opened Monday and combines the best elements of a convenience store with good food, great deals and a family atmosphere. Moreover, the attached barber shop adds to the atmosphere that separates this store from just any ole’ gas station. There’s even an arcade game to keep the kids busy while customers get their hair cut.
To celebrate their grand opening, the Market is running a promotion from now until the end of July: buy one 99 cent cigar and get one free. Additionally, to familiarize customers with the Market, owner Mustafa Babul says he encourages anyone to come in, have a chat and enjoy a free cup of coffee.
In need of cash? There’s an ATM. Having car trouble or in need of a few groceries before dinner? The Neighborhood Market can help with all of that. “We have pretty much everything,” said Babul.
Of course, they have all the salty and sweet snacks normally found in a gas station too. And with food options like pizza, sandwiches and wings, the Neighborhood Market has what’s needed to satisfy any craving.
