Clark County OKs $1M for Mario’s market expansion

Aged refrigerators hummed, cutlery clanked, and the aroma of corn whiffed in the air, as long lines formed Thursday afternoon at the butcher and hot food counters inside Mario’s WestSide Market.

“Mario’s is more than just a grocery store,” Clark County Commissioner William McCurdy II told the Review-Journal. McCurdy pointed out that it’s common to spot “many of our trailblazers from the Westside” sitting inside for a hot meal.

“It’s a place that you can actually see community building,” he said.
