New Fruit Market
Is A Colorful Place

DANNY RASKIN

Local Columnist

olors are the thing

along with quality
merchandise and
competitive prices at the
8,000-square-foot Vic's Fruit
Market . . . owned by Vic Ven-
timiglia on the 13 Mile Road
side of Country Corners at 13
and Southfield.
Before opening, he wanted
a lot of color . . . and that's
what he got with interior
designer Jeff Scissors pain-
ting large segments of
yellows, purples, greens and
reds . . . Even Vic's bags have
color . . . with yellow
dominating the name . . .
Throughout his "super-
market" fruit and vegetable
operation, everything is laid
out in such a way to make
things colorful . . . Vic's a
stickler for people being in an
atmosphere of color contrast
. . . to brighten up their day.
He also owns Ventimiglia's
Italian Foods on Dodge Park
Road in Sterling Heights .. .
and is a regular every morn-
ing at Eastern Market and
Detroit Produce Terminal,
picking up fresh, quality
merchandise.
It's all Vic knows, the fruit
and vegetable game . . . and
insists on being the best .. .
He was a little nine-year-old
doing setup work for his
father, Victor, at his store on
W. Eight Mile Road . . . By
the time he was 16, Vic was
doing the buying.
His grandfather, Tony Ven-
timiglia, had a store at
Bessemore and Vinton, where
the street cars used to turn
around years back . . . lbny
lived upstairs, where Vic's
dad was born and raised.
Last year, Vic had himself
a hole-in-one in the Produce
Golf Tourney at Tpurnament
Players Club of Jacksonville,
Fla. . . . and is co-owner with
Herb Abrash of Oyster Alley
in downtown Detroit's Trap-
pers Alley.
Jack-Tec Investment Co.
owns Country Corners, and
Jack Iden had been looking
for the proper fruit market
. . . Vic was contacted to come
look the area over . . . and is
glad he did . . . so is Jack .. .
but more so, Vic's customers.
KIM GURECKI, daughter
of Arlene and Marvin
Gurecki, can look back on her
sophomore year as a stepping
stone to an even bigger junior
star on the North Farmington
girls basketball squad . . . She
had a game average of 12
points, led the team in steals

and assists, hit 12 three-
pointers during the season
and looped in three shots
from half-court . . . Kim was
an easy honorable mention in
the Western Lakes league.

ROSE ROSENBERG

(Greenberger), formerly
known as Ruchel Layes, from
Nove Klenovce, Czechoslo-
vakia, was told that a
neighbor from the same town
whom she hasn't seen in close
to 50 years is supposedly liv-
ing in either the Southfield or
Oak Park area . . . If anybody
knows of these people, please
call Rose at 569-7505. k
A MOST NOVEL innova-
tion was everyone being given
a candle at recent bar mitz-
vah reception of Harley
Marks, son of Leah and Mitch
Marks at Excalibur.
It was candle number 14 for
the 120 guests to light sym-
bolizing peace throughout the
world.
Loving Cup Trio played
Harley's affair for both young
and older . . . including fren-
zied music of both hora and
disco dancing.
Excalibur executive chef
Marty Wilk carved a perfect
Jewish star out of an ice block
. . . mime greeted people at
the door, Lindsay Press drew
caricatures, John Cetrone
entertained kids with his
tricks and humorous patter,
Leah's mother and Cantor
Eugena Mimom, Israel's first
female cantor, sang with The
Loving Cup, etc.
Only thing missing was a
Leah Marks fashion show .. .

BELATED CONGRATS.
... to Victor Bernstein . . . on

his 87th birthday . . . He was
recently honored by the
Goodfellows with a plaque for
his 65 years of active par-
ticipation . . . Victor couldn't
attend the reception because
wife Mary was recovering
from surgery and he wouldn't
go without her . . . Although
not able to stand on the cor-
ner selling papers as Victor
once did, he mails out letters
to his special people . . . and
still contributed over $400
this holiday season . . . Victor
certainly deserved the stan-
ding ovation given him for his
65 years of service.
