Social Responsibility

Our mission is to be the ultimate neighborhood store. No matter the neighborhood.

Store by store, we focus on building and nourishing the communities we serve, creating lasting relationships with our customers, our staff and our vendors. That means we buy from as many local tastemakers as possible, connecting them with our customers and doing our part to champion the regional food economy. At the same time, we operate in a financially responsible way, and do our best to inspire environmental stewardship. So that we can be here, serving you, for as long as possible—because at the end of the day, we are all in this together.
