Corona Pork Store??

En route to Leo's for a mama's special (so good), I noticed Corona Pork Store appeared to be open. Tempted to check it out (i've never been), I decided against--I'm a loyalist to a fault. Mama's special was so good--we ate our sandwiches in the backyard of the bakery, with the sun beaming on our faces--beautiful.
But I must admit I am intrigued by Corona Pork Store--I recall reading on this site people bemoaning the loss of this place...so what's the deal? what's good there? I wouldn't feel like I was cheating on Leo's if they had different sandwiches like sausage and peppers...meatball...
Corona Pork Store was known for its Chicken & Veal Parm sandwiches. You mentioned the store is again occupied but is it Corona Pork Store or someone else.
I haven't been to Leo's in a while, but do remember that there were two stores on the way that I always confused. One was Corona Pork Store, the other was Corona Heights Pork Store. Are either one of them still there? I also bemoan the fact that since Leo's started closing on Monday, they no longer have a sausage and pepper special, but I thought they still did meatballs on, I think, Wednesdays.
They still have meatballs, but only mid-week, which doesn't help me much, being that I work in LI and never make it back on time.
I'm not sure who was running the Pork store, or which one it was. I was driving down 108 street on the way to Leo's, and noticed out of the corner of my eye that the store had its doors open...I'll make a trek eventually...

This must be an April Fools joke...Not cool! Mary and Frank have been gone for a long time now. Leo's aka Mama couldnt hold a candle to Mary's heros, mozzarell, or anything else for that matter. The lady was a saint was in Zagat and was an institution. She is sorely missed. I put a up a thread asking where she is? I thought Jim might know or some of the other chowhounds. Mary is the female version of Dom from DiFara....Once in a lifetime. Two saints!
