“LaSheita Sayer has a vision for the old Crossroads Theater space in the heart of Five Points. She’s been working on a concept she calls Melody Market: a convenience store that fully embraces the neighborhood’s historic legacy.
“I want to start with what it’s not,” she said. “It’s not a Black convenience store. It is a convenience store that celebrates Black history.”
Sayer is a serial entrepreneur who currently uses the space at Washington Street and 26th Avenue for her PR firm, the Zozo Group. She’s been raising money for Melody, and she hopes to open up shop early next year. It will offer snacks, drinks and fresh lunch options. She plans to build relationships with local suppliers to stock craft beer, salads and other products made nearby. Sayer promises she will not sell cigarettes or lottery tickets.”
