Something’s happening at 129 W. Market, where Wolf Supermarket used to be, and we know one of the principals.


Recently there have been signs of construction activity at 129 W. Market Street, which old-timers know as the former Wolf Supermarket (closed circa 1993; Gary Wolf died in 2011).

I checked on Elevate, and the building’s owner is Cielito Lindo Properties LLC.

Digressing only briefly, I’ll turn this over to Wikipedia.

Cielito lindo” is a popular Mexican song from a Spanish copla, popularized in 1882 by Mexican author Quirino Mendoza y Cortés (c. 1862–1957). It is roughly translated as “Lovely Sweet One”. Although the word cielo means “sky” or “heaven”, it is also a term of endearment comparable to sweetheart or honey. Cielito, the diminutive, can be translated as “sweetie”; lindo means “cute”, “lovely” or “pretty”. Sometimes the song is known by words from the refrain, “Canta y no llores” or simply the “Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay song”.

My first search for Cielto Lindo LC brought me to house flippers in Frisco, Texas. However, searching the company name with the street address brought this.

And more intriguingly, this.

Now, where have I heard the name Toki Masubuchi before? Finally, LinkedIn is helpful.

The possibilities are endless. Tell me what you know, and thanks to the Lads of the Village for spurring the discussion.
