In Churchill, corner store shopping is a way of life. Witout personal transportation, the closest grocery store is far away. Many residents have no choice but to pay higher prices for corner store convenience shopping. The selections are also scant, and offer little produce.
Many lower income neighborhood residents depend upon food stamps. The noticeable price difference between retailers affects a family’s budget, as does the lack of available healthy food at cornerstores.
