Family-owned grocery store opening in Pavilion

I wish somebody had tipped us to the new grocery store opening in Pavilion.
It's the kind of local entrepreneur story I like -- seeing a need, seeing an opportunity and taking action.
The store is being opened by Jeff and Vicki Kingdon, a Pavilion couple with no prior grocery store experience.
And it raises the question: If an entrepreneur is willing to take a chance and open a grocery store in Pavilion, why can't somebody do the same thing in Downtown Batavia?
There's some great retail space vacant downtown. There's no reason for it to remain empty.
