Neighbors, this is actually happening. From what John M. never thought it’d happen in his lifetime, to a strong and valued commitment to open this store in November of 2018. Hmm, lots of things happening in November huh? This is awe-inspiring, exciting, scary (a little) and hopefully a wonderful addition to the East End. Sign up for the next event this Thursday 1/25 and 6 PM here.
We’ll be running a series of articles based on the community conversations that the grocery team is having, but mainly we’d like you all think about being realistic (and grounded) about placing your hopes on this building will be. Remember, it needs to be accessible to a mixed income neighborhood. More on this later. In the meantime, check out the East End Grocery Store pledge to Church Hill and beyond:
