It’s Official! Garfield has a grocery store!

Aldi has announced plans to open at 5200 Penn Avenue. Neighbors have fought long and hard to bring a grocery store back to Garfield, so this news comes as quite a victory for the surrounding communities.

No more long walks up the street to buy groceries. No more relying on jitney cabs for transportation home from the store. No more “bulk trips” to stock the pantry at faraway grocers.

Now that we’ve secured a bona fide grocery store, it’s time to celebrate this positive change. Here’s a toast to all our neighbors and community members who advocated to nourish a food desert back to good health. Cheers!

Aggie Brose (Deputy Director of the BGC) celebrates with Allegheny County Executive, Rich Fitzgerald, and Henry Pyatt (from the Mayor's Office) at a community meeting to welcome the new Penn Avenue grocery store.

Thanks for Walking with Us!

Thanks for helping us demonstrate our community’s grocery needs yesterday! Such neighborhood support is essential to furthering our conversation about the future of 5200 Penn Avenue. We must continue joining forces to maintain this momentum, and effect real change, for a grocery store in Garfield.

If we don’t stay committed to the possibility of a Penn Avenue grocery store, then ALDI might just sell the building to the highest bidder (read: commercial developers with no stake in our community). Nobody wants another auto-parts chain popping up within a local ‘food desert,’ so please help us turn the oasis of a grocery store into a reality for Penn Avenue!IMG_20150318_180336911

 

Aldi, “Won’t you be our neighbor?”

 

Aldi is deciding whether or not to open a new grocery store at the former Bottom Dollar location (5200 Penn Avenue). We are organizing a show of support for this initiative, a demonstration of Garfield’s neighborhood buying power. Come join us this Wednesday (3/18) at 6pm.

Neighbors will congregate at the former Bottom Dollar location and proceed, en masse, walking down to the Aldi on Baum Blvd. Together, we can show Aldi just what kind of loyal customers they are missing out on if they refuse to build a store at 5200 Penn Ave. We are planning for a leisurely walk, but will also be offering transportation services as needed.

The more neighbors who walk together next week (to keep a grocery store in the community), the less distance we’ll have to walk in the future (to meet our grocery needs). Please help our neighborhood ‘turn out the tote’ bags on Wednesday. Let’s get to walking! #Walk2Aldi
