In a city that seems to be blanketed with Pick 'n Save supermarkets, the opening of a smaller supermarket is probably not a big deal to most people.

The new store includes fresh produce and a meat counter. It's in an 8,900-square-foot building that once housed a hardware store before new owner Robert Montemayor remodeled it.

Along with owning the building, Montemayor operates Monte Enterprises LLC, which owns Monterrey Market.
