Hercules Grocery

Hercules Grocery Hercules Fancy Grocery Mister Hercules, a west village institution, first opened his beer and grocery store in 1971 at bleeker and christopher street.

In 1997, determined to keep going, despite rent increases, he re-opened his shop at the corner of morton and 7th avenue. While there was crime in the neighborhood and in that particular area, Mister Hercules went out of his way to help a Japanese woman who eventually was murdered, and a local gypsy family, whose building had caught on fire. He never accepted money for his deeds. Hailing from Greece, Mister Hercules now resides in Queens.
