Melman's Market - 1954
Melman's Super Market was a mainstay on Brookline Boulevard for sixty years. The store was owned by Morris Melman. It opened in 1927 at 924 Brookline Boulevard, then carrying the label Triangle Grocers.
In June of 1954 the store had a grand-reopening after an extensive remodeling effort. The modern market contained many of the latest conveniences and offered a variety of meats, fruits and other grocery items.
This was a time in Brookline when small markets like Melman's were the best place to do your shopping. Brookline Boulevard had several markets and specialty stores along the length of the commercial district. These stores were within walking distance of most consumers, and for those who could make the trip, delivery service was offered. Melman's Market closed its doors in the late-1980s.
