John's Marketplace in Multnomah Village
In 1990 John's was left operating as a convenience store along Multnomah Blvd. which had now long ago replaced the railroad tracks of the Red Electric. In the early 90's the second owner Jack Furman had a new formula for success. Jack put in a large wine selection and sold beer for less; much, much less. Jack began to operate the Store as a marketplace. In 1999 David Percival became the third owner of John's Marketplace. Today the old supermarket of the 50's is crammed with beer and wine from around the world, and Dave's Keg-Dog Chunks is the friendly mascot.
The Market now boasts Portland's largest selection of beer and wine. If you are looking for a better selection, well let's just say you have a ways to go to find it!
