Lou Perrine’s Gas and Grocery threw a long-awaited party on Wednesday afternoon.

The longtime Kenosha business held an official grand opening with a Ribbon Cutting/Community Celebration at its new south side location at 80th Street and 22nd Avenue.

“We’re super excited,” owner Anthony Perrine said. “We got to serve the downtown community for so long and now we get to serve the south side.”

The new 4,000 square-foot store (aka “Lou’s 2”), which opened its doors April 6, includes an Einstein Bros. Bagels.

Wednesday’s festivities included music, food samples, raffles and discounts all day. Community leaders and elected officials were on hand, including YouTube sensation Tristan Jass.
