Acme General Store is getting more general in merchandise and beefing up its food this week.

Denise VandenBerghe is opening the second floor of Acme Friday for outdoors clothing, camping gear and outdoor supplies and games. A deli will occupy the first floor adjacent to the ice cream bar.  Items moved upstairs made room for tables downstairs for customers who want to eat in for breakfast and lunch.

The hours, beginning Thursday, will reflect, the store’s expansion. Two part-time employees have been added and Jacob Danner will be the deli manager.

“We’ve been planning for this a long time and we’re able to offer new inventory every day by having the second floor,” VandenBerghe said.

Wild Ace Pizza and Pub chefs will be handling the menu at Acme.

Acme received approval last winter for its window design from the city’s Board of Architectural Review that moved forward the store’s plan to expand the second floor and develop its deli concept.

The full-service deli will feature Boars Head meats. Specialty sandwiches, such as the Dagwood, will be available and customers will be able to choose their own meat, cheese and bread for $5.99. The meats will also be sold for takeout, cut to customers’ requests.

Chicken and egg salad sandwiches will be among the mainstays.

Acme will offer Davidovich Bagels baked daily in New York and shipped overnight. Among the cream cheeses will be vegetable, olive red pepper, pineapple walnut, regular and another to be named later.

Store hours beginning Thursday will be as follows:
Monday - Thursday:  7 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Friday & Saturday:  7 a.m. – 9 p.m.
Sunday:  noon – 6 p.m.

VandenBerghe said the new inventory will include a kids’ line for shoes and clothing. Men's and women's specialized outdoor wear is featured with more quantity and styles, and merchandise will be available for holiday-themed events.

The second floor will be available for parties for children with a climbing wall, an air gun cage that shoots soft nerf-like balls, and pizza & food from Wild Ace.  Oh, and don't forget ice cream from Acme.

Garden supplies and flowers, supplied by two local growers, will be featured outside and in front of the store. “We’ll have garden supplies and art, like the metal folk art,” VandenBerghe said.
