When you first meet Joe Tomeh, you might mistake his gruff exterior and lack of verbosity for either crankiness or indifference. But you’d be wrong on both counts. Joe is a pillar of his north end community, supplying smokes and snacks to a wildly diverse clientele, many of whom he knows by name. Joe—plus his family, who all work in the shop—is a perfect example of how corner stores are essential to the fabric of a community, and you think so too.
