Inez and Jonas Oliveira, who moved to Gloucester in 1991, opened the Brazilian Convenience Store at 324 Main Street. “‘I am the first person in Gloucester to open a store with all products from Brazil. We know people in Boston and Framingham who have done good. Gloucester has a lot of Hispanic people and we hope we can do good, too,’ Oliveira said.” (Everton, “A little bit of Brazil comes to Gloucester”)
