201 Somerville Ave, Somerville map
At a time when it seems like too many shops are closing up or jobs are being lost, it was exciting to join Mayor Joe Curtatone, Senator Patricia Jehlen, Alderman Dennis Sullivan, and other members of the community for the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Sousa’s Market on Somerville Ave, near Union Sq. Sousa’s Market will be a family-owned convenience store and market run by long-time resident of Somerville and Cambridge Walter Sousa and the Sousa family.
This is the kind of local community business that will help revitalize the local economies across the country and get us back on the right track. I know the Sousa family will work hard, and I wish them all the best of luck!
Walter Sousa was also honored by the Legislature and Governor this month on the 25th annual Day of Portugal celebration at the State House for his contribution to the Portuguese communities of Massachusetts. Full story from the Somerville Journal:
