All you folks panicked by the closure of Terry’s Finer Foods, the Heights grocery store of longstanding, take heart: Its replacement, the Heights Corner Market, could be open in three weeks or so, proprietor Eric Herget says.

Herget is leasing the entire 8,000 square feet in the building that formerly housed Terry’s, closed last week by the financially troubled Lex Golden. The new store will have three parts: A market where outside vendors — such as a bakery and a chocolatier — will have their own spaces (in the space formerly operated as a full restaurant and before that Foster Cochran Co.); the grocery store and an expanded deli; and a bistro serving pastries and coffee in the morning and drinks at night (in the space formerly occupied by The Pizzeria).

“We already have the best meat department in town,” Herget said, with employees “who have been there forever” and who will keep their jobs. The grocery’s deli will be able to steam fresh seafood for takeout, and the store will put more emphasis on prepared meals than did Terry’s. The product line will also be expanded, including such items as flowers and bulk candy.

The little bistro, which will close at 8 p.m., will feature a “liars’ table” off to itself and surrounded by bookcases that you can reserve. Heights Corner Market will also deliver; Herget is partnering with his son, Ryan, who owns Chef Shuttle.

“We will have an entirely fresh inventory, from aluminum foil to shrimp and prime meats,” Herget said, in case people worry they’re getting dated food from the closed store. “It’s going to be as good at a minimum as what Terry’s used to be.” Facebook and Instagram sites, which should go live this week, will keep people up to date on what’s fresh.
