Philabundance to Open First U.S. Nonprofit Grocery Store
October 04, 2012
Philadelphia-based hunger relief organization Philabundance will debut a new grocery store called Fare & Square in Chester, Pa. Slated to open in spring 2013, the 13,000-sq.-ft. store will mark the country’s first-ever nonprofit grocery concept. With a free annual membership, customers will have access to fresh produce, meats, dairy, seafood and frozen foods at low prices, and a “Fare & Square Bucks” program will be available for those who qualify. Philabundance is working with local grocery retail consultants to design the space.
