CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS — The wait is almost over for the first-ever grocery store on the Island.
Island Market IGA, located near Whitecap Blvd. and Park Road 22, is expected to open this weekend.
The market, along with four small businesses in the Balli Center are 5 years in the making.
Ground was broken two years ago and the goal was to have them open this past summer.
However, that got pushed back due to hurricanes, the pandemic, and some sewer line issues.
Workers say they're stocking shelves and cleaning to have it ready for customers this weekend.
