This reminds me a bit of the arc of a supermarket in the Boston neighborhood of Jamaica Plain. It opened in the 1960s as Sklars, a standard supermarket that also catered to Eastern European and Irish immigrants. It then became Hi-Lo Foods, which served the Latino community. The neighborhood around it has been gentrifying, and about a decade ago, it was converted into a small format Whole Foods. Very similar footprint to what you're showing here and likely still alive in that footprint because it's in a walkable, urban area.
