Update on Bottom Dollar

Due to your interest in keeping a grocery store in our neighborhood – and the leadership of our elected officials – ALDI’s executives have made a commitment to meet with Mayor Bill Peduto, Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald, and the BGC discuss the future of 5200 Penn Ave. in early February. In light of this new development, we are cancelling our bus trip and will instead hold a community meeting Jan. 15 at 10 a.m., 113 N. Pacific Ave. Thanks for your support, and we hope to see you there!

Also, if you have not yet signed our Neighborhood Grocery Store petition (form below), please do so by Jan. 30. We will bring this list to our meeting with ALDI to show the strong community support for keeping a grocery store in Garfield.

Small Business Resource Fair

In conjunction with the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh, we will host a small business resource fair from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 22 at 113 N. Pacific Ave.

The fair will be open to the public, both businesses and residents alike, from anywhere in the city. A number of organizations will be in attendance to meet with established businesses as well as those interested in learning more about starting a business. Refreshments will be provided.
