Fort Worth’s Legendary Roy Pope Grocery Comes Back to Life

Stepping inside Roy Pope Grocery for the first time since the iconic Fort Worth spot closed in April of 2020 is like coming home. It will be for many when the beloved neighborhood grocery and gourmet store reopens in early May at 2300 Merrick Street after a year long renovation and reimagining. Expect a host of upgrades and a brighter, more stylish and updated appearance.

“People want it to be the store they remember, only more relevant to the way they live now,” new owner Lou Lambert tells PaperCity Fort Worth. “We can’t compete with the vast selection of bigger markets, but we can offer the convenience and service of a true neighborhood store. We are trying to listen carefully to our loyal customers, yet fill a hole in the market.

“We wanted to provide a place for the neighborhood to gather.”
