More about Apple Street Market…..
The Apple Street Market will be a full service grocery store located in the former Save-A-Lot building in Northside. Affordable fresh produce, assorted deli items, quality meats and dairy, and a variety of foods will be available. This new grocery will be a place where everyone feels welcome —owned by its workers and the community. Apple Street Market will eventually be one of a network of neighborhood groceries in low food access areas.
Our Vision: This business will eventually be one of a network of neighborhood groceries — all committed to creating an affordable, innovative grocery option along with providing family sustaining job opportunities. The launch of this grocery is being guided by the Cincinnati Union Cooperative Initiative (CUCI). CUCI is a non-profit organization that partners with organizations and individuals to create worker-owned businesses and support business models that focus on building an economy that works for all.
Multi-Stakeholder Cooperative This new Apple Street Market will be a multi-stakeholder cooperative. This business model brings together two groups: Community Owners and Worker Owners.
Our community ownership campaign begins Monday, June 2. We are continuously looking for block leaders and volunteers! Please contact Casey Whitten-Amadon at email@example.com if you are interested! Our goal is to open the store in early 2015.
