Tower Market Sold!!!

My favorite San Francisco market, Tower Market near Twin Peaks, has been sold to Mike Stone, the son of Mollie Stone's founder. I talked to one of the butchers and he said that he had a 2 hour discussion with the new owner and was told that everything would remain the same, same meat supplier, etc. The store will be called Mollie's Tower Market and there will be some remodeling. I asked whether the same personnel would be there and he said that he was told that they would. He also said that it would be a union shop. I also talked to one of the checkers -- she was told the same. Don't know about the deli or fish and seafood sources or whether the prices will change. I'm taking a wait and see attitude for now, but it is a bit unsettling -- kind of like the last time Tower was sold (to the Viglizzo's.)
