Before there were major grocery stores there was the Bluebird, a community store established in the early 1900s. When the Bluebird first originated there were between seven (7) to nine (9) stores located in various neighborhoods of Clarksburg. Since its origination, the Bluebird has had between four (4) to five (5) owners, and is currently owned by Eric Leaseburg. Leaseburg purchased the Bluebird in 1996 from the Lopez family, and has since made a transition from grocery store to restaurant.

The Bluebird is uptown Clarksburg’s one stop shop. Currently, the Bluebird is the only business located in the Central Business District of Clarksburg, which offers grocery and convenience items, a deli, and a restaurant to customers.

“The customers are really friendly, and I enjoy working here, for Eric. He’s a really great boss, and he treats his employees well,” said Bluebird employee, Courtney Heckert.

The Bluebird offers in house seating for up to 65 with breakfast and lunch daily. Tomato sauces, peppers in sauce, pastas, olive oils and locally baked Italian breads can be found in the Italian specialties section of the Bluebird.  bluebird interior grocery

The store serves breakfast Monday-Saturday from 7am-10am and boasts a full breakfast menu. The Bluebird offers a different special for lunch daily, and customers can also always grab a sandwich from the deli, or a bowl of their daily soup. The Bluebird has fair priced quality products for its customers. The Bluebird offers carry-out or dine-in, and free delivery for orders over $30.

You can find the Bluebird at the Blackberry Festival, Italian Heritage Festival, and the Black Heritage Festival. The Bluebird offers full service catering from five (5) to five hundred (500) people, and their location can be rented for in house catering events.      

The Bluebird has been at its current location, 342 W. Main St. Clarksburg, for seven (7) years. The store is currently in the process of being renovated, and is also having their delivery van remodeled. The back of the store, that faces Traders Alley, has been completed and the front will begin within the next few weeks.

The Bluebird is open Monday-Friday 7a.m.-5:30p.m. and Saturday 7a.m.-1:00p.m. Orders can be placed by calling the Bluebird at (304)624-7429.
