We will miss you, Margaret!

As many of you have heard, North End legend Margaret Lawrence, owner of the iconic Hollywood Market, passed away on Wednesday. She was 95 years old.

Margaret had owned the Hollywood Market for over 40 years. Many of us remember buying candy from her as children, and beer as adults. We grew up shopping at her happy little market, and always enjoyed chatting with her about current events, politics, the neighborhood, and about the changes she’d seen in Boise over the years. Margaret had a colorful past that was always connected to the pulse of the city. She also had an infectious optimism and love of others’ happiness. These were all the things that encouraged loyalty to her market.

Margaret was a true Boisean and North Ender and will be greatly missed.

We will update on Margaret’s memorial services as more information becomes available.
