“One of the challenges we face is trying to differentiate ourselves from the big guys,” says State Street owner Rich Cooper. And they do it well, by offering fresh sandwiches, hot entrees, soups and baked goods and responding to customer requests with things like locally produced items, an expanded cheese selection and a growing menu of vegan and gluten-free options. Fun fact: State Street and its sister store in Florence, Coopers Corner, pulled cigarettes off their shelves 15 years before one of those big guys, CVS, adopted that policy.
