Community-based giving: This is a weekly blog post that highlights some of the various ways in which Compassion Coalition serves our community. Check back every Monday for new posts.
Thank you for the overwhelming support over the last 2 months. Bargain Grocer opened on December 3, 2018 at 1110 Lincoln Ave, growing 10x in size! Moving from 1,200 sq ft of retail space to over 13,000 sq. ft of retail space is no easy feat for business, but especially a non profit of our size.
We’ve reached 8 weeks of being open in our new location, and you’ve completely blown us away with your continued support. I think we can all agree that Lincoln Ave has never been busier, and it’s great to see new life being breathed into our great city. West Utica continues to shine a little brighter, and food accessibility and food equality is growing throughout our communities. Since we’ve opened we now have SIXTY employees and trainees punching in to work. Let’s give a round of applause for jobs being created in our great city. We cannot thank you enough for your continued support, and for shopping with a purpose and for a purpose!
