How it all began
During the late 80s, housing construction on the Island was booming with new residents enjoying their freedom from suburbia through the unique, new urban environment called Harbor Town. A gorgeous view of the Mississippi River, beautiful homes, and a small walk-able community were sure signs of a true neighborhood.
One thing was missing. A true neighborhood grocery- a throwback to a time when the local grocer was closer to home. Harbor Town’s founder wanted a grocery that would be a short walk away, a place where neighbors could gather, a place that could be be the center of town without distracting from the town itself.
Hence, Miss Cordelia’s was born. Named after Harbor Town developer Henry Turley’s mother, Miss Cordelia’s is exactly that neighborhood grocery.
Reflecting its namesake, Miss Cordelia’s sparks with the southern charm upon which it was founded. Sadly, Miss Cordelia is no longer with us, but her values and sense of community remain. She loved being at the store and love the comfortable feeling it provides. We at Miss Cordelia’s hope you will as well.
Miss Cordelia’s is more than just a grocery store. We also offer full service catering for your event, big or small. If you have an event coming up, look no further. Give us a call!
