According to owner Missy Culver (and Mountain Xpress), the new 2200-square-foot grocery, which will offer local, natural and specialty foods, grab-and-go sandwiches/light fare, beer, wine, coffee and gifts, will open on or near next Wednesday, February 6.

Look for Imladris Farm jams (YUM), Three Graces Dairy cheeses, Roots hummus, Seventh Generation cleaning products, Hickory Nut Gap meats, goodies from Skin Fare and more.

Culver will also offer a sitting area to sip wine or coffee. “I see it as a community center,” she said to Asheville Scene in December.

Find Livi’s Pantry, named after Culver’s daughter Olivia, at The Lofts at Reynolds Village at 41 North Merrimon Ave. (across from the Woodfin YMCA).

Culver is also a founder and former co-owner of the tasty Luella’s Bar-B-Q, also on Merrimon.

Livi’s Pantry will be open Mon.-Sat., 8 a.m.-7 p.m.

    As someone who lives less than half a mile from here, it will be really nice to have an alternative to driving to Ingles! If your prices are reasonable and your beer is cold, you will have a loyal customer.

    Perfume on a pig is still a pig. It’s woodfin and its a risk…

    Hey Thanks for this! Just to clarify, I’m former co-owner of Luella’s. No longer with the restaurant. Livi’s is my baby now! Thanks again.

      Hey Missy! Thanks for your correction, I fixed it above. Good luck to you and the girls! I plan on stopping in.

    It’s not Woodfin, it’s North North North East West Asheville.

    1. PBnJ January 30, 2013

      yes, that is more correct

  7. PBnJ January 30, 2013

    Great news! But that is Woodfin, not North Asheville.

    Hooray for Livi’s!
