On April 9, 2002 Helen Thorgalsen and Bonnie Clement bought Meserves Market with the vision of creating a warm, friendly and inviting old fashioned general store. They changed the name to H.B. Provisions (from their first initials, Helen & Bonnie) and began the job of recreating and rebranding the store. They removed everything from the store and brought in all new shelving and displays followed by installign the deli and all new inventory. The most obvious change was painting the building a new, happy yellow color and the trim accented with green and maroon(wow, what a beautiful old building) On May 21, 2002 they removed the paper from the windows and the customers came roling in!

In May of 2007 Helen and Bonnie decided to part ways and later Bonnie became the sole owner of the H.B. Provisions. Although they still remain friends they found it was much better to have just one owner of the store.
H.B. Provisions is thriving today as the 'HUB" of Lower Village where frends and family gather whether they are locals coming in everyday or visitors from afar.
