Update on New Orleans only Black-Owned grocery store, Circle Food Store: Sold to Sidney Torres

Media mogul Sidney Torres is the new owner of the historic Circle Food Store in New Orleans.

Torres payed $1.7 million at an Orleans Parish Sheriff’s auction on Thursday for the building located at St. Bernard Ave. and N. Claiborne Ave.

Torres, who is the former owner of SDT, a trash company credited with cleaning up the French Quarter, which he later sold. And he’s the current star of “The Deed,” a story about flipping houses to build wealth.
