DES MOINES, Iowa – A historic south side grocery store is honoring its history and service to the city of Des Moines.
Graziano Brothers has hired an artist to recreate what the building looked like when the store opened in 1912.
Two years ago the building needed some repairs. When the plaster was removed off the building, the original signs were revealed. That’s when the idea for a mural came about.
When completed, the design will include hanging meats and cheeses, wine and spices, as well as Graziano signs.
The mural is expected to be completed in August.
