    The name Benny's is making a return to the Rhode Island retail scene.

    A grocery store will open soon in Richmond as Benny's Fresh Market.

    The owners posted on Facebook that they legally obtained the rights to the name and the logo.

    "We grew up shopping at Benny's with our parents, and it will forever be one of our favorite childhood memories. Although we do not have affiliation and are not owned by the original Benny's, it fills us with nostalgia to be able to honor such an iconic piece of Rhode Island history," a Facebook post said.

    Benny's Fresh Market promises to offer products at low prices. No opening date was given.

    The legendary Benny's department store chain closed down in 2017 after 93 years in business.
