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:
Garfield needs this grocery store. I need this grocery store. The last thing ANYONE needs is another empty storefront.
It is crucial to keep a clean, functioning grocery story in this area. The benefits ripple through the community – healthy food, stronger kids, healthier adults able to contribute more, jobs, etc. If you don’t want to open another Aldi this close to the one on Baum, at least sell it to another store and don’t hold onto the property, keeping it empty to “preserve” your piece of the market share. Have a conscience.
