STAR GROCERY: REMINDING LOCALS OF THE OLD-TIME MARKET THAT SERVED THE WEST SIDE FOR DECADES

Star Grocery is a small, located on West 13th Street, a Pueblo iconic historical store that sells a little of everything. The store, launched in 1979, was long time owned by Joe Skufca, who also had a meat market there where he sold hormone free chicken and other meats. He died in mid 2016 at the age of 90. 

The building sat vacant for a time, and was finally reopened in mid 2018 by a young couple, now providing the traditional friendly small town service the West Side grocery store was known for, for decades. 

This place is a great quick stop for drinks, slushies, candy, made in-house cotton candy, hot dogs, sandwiches, chips, coffee, donuts, frozen meals, grocery items and many say its the best place to buy homemade beef jerky. Photo of Skufca and today’s Star Grocery.
