Former owner Earl Albert, left, and current owner, Bernie Fallon, take time out to stand together inside Loeb’s Foodtown in Lenox.

LENOX — Inside Loeb’s Foodtown, the names “Leslie B,” “Big Jim” and the “Itallian Stallion” hang above the deli counter like Hall of Fame athletes.
Each sandwich, crafted for and named after family members of longtime store owner Earl Albert, has come along during the 51-year ownership of the store by Albert and his wife, Lesley.
After more than half-a-century, the grocery store on 42 Main St. in Lenox has changed hands. Bernie Fallon and his wife, Isabel, purchased the local establishment. Details of the sale were not disclosed.
Operating under the corporate name Goodology Enterprises Inc., Fallon says there are no plans to change the name of the store or the custom-named sandwiches. Fallon chose his corporation name based off the word, “Goodolgy,” which he self-defines as “personal development through kindness.”
