Springfield Mayor Sarno said Big Y Express is coming downtown. Big Y has announced plans to build a new idea, Big Y Express Fresh Market. This new plan will be at 1500 Main Street. According to Mayor Sarno, it will replace the old CVS at Tower Square. Currently, there are not any major grocery store chains in the downtown area. Sarno said this announcement comes as several market-rate apartments are being built, including the old Court Square Hotel project.
