Editorís note: According to Green.Ohio.com readers, the top story of 2012 in Green is the new Acme Fresh Market.



Attracting a $28 million Acme Fresh Market



Bringing a second supermarket to Green to compete with the already established Giant Eagle store on Corporate Woods Parkway was a dream of Mayor Dick Nortonís that became a reality earlier this year.



Now Green will have the 21st Acme Fresh Market built in the area in the last 20 years when doors open next summer at the 75,000-square-foot structure on the east side of Massillon Road at Graybill Road.



The new business conquest will mean an income tax for the city from hundreds of new employees.



At the same time, Giant Eagle is expanding its facilities to 84,000 square feet, adding even more jobs to the Green marketplace when work is completed.
