Rosie’s Market will open in the coming weeks and will have all the expected items: gas, coffee, snacks and more. However, store manager Dean Gissleman hopes customers will notice a difference in quality at Rosie’s. “We’re an independent store. We don’t have to abide by anybody’s template,” said Gisselman.
