It’s finally happening. Your favorite theoretical grocery store has signed a lease on a location.
The details are under wraps until next week, but after years of planning and fundraising, the South Philly Food Co-op grocery store you have all been waiting for is coming to life.
Since 2012, we’ve reported on their membership goals and plans to open this co-op grocery store. They have been searching for a location for years, but finding a perfect space proved to be a bit difficult. Last year the co-op then expanded its search area to as far west as 23rd Street and as far south as Oregon Avenue, for a space between 3,500 and 5,000 sq. ft.
It has been a long process, but the organization’s hard work is finally paying off.
South Philly Food Co-op is hosting an event at Adobe Cafe on Tuesday, November 15 at 6 p.m. to make the announcement. You can RSVP here.
Check back next week for a location reveal.
