There weren't many businesses were you could get kofta, hookah supplies and dog food in one location and sadly now, there is one less. Lulu's Deli that served a myriad of munchie banishing dishes to the college-student heavy neighborhoods nearby has closed. The corner store had operated in that location for 17 years. Five years ago, the shop underwent renovations and a kitchen, counter and a few seats were added along with delivery.

But all hope is not yet lost. According to Facebook, another location has been secured, in nearby Mac/Groveland and all they need is a few more funds to finish renovations. A Go Fund Me campaign that has thus far raised $100 of a $15,000 goal. Money raised will go towards inventory, a sales system, a beer and wine license and other costs necessary to restart the business.
