At this time, we anticipate our Denfeld store will be open in March 2016 preceded by hiring about 60 new staff in January and February. Stop by and check out the construction site at 4426 Grand Avenue!
There’s more good news for our Denfeld Project as the collaboration with the City’s Edible Duluth Committee has led to two green projects right across Grand Avenue from our site:
- The Duluth Community Garden Program will have 20 community garden spots, a “food forest” and an outdoor community space.
- Community Action’s Seed for Success Program will have a “deep winter greenhouse” providing jobs and year-round food production.
The Co-op welcomes and supports both of these projects and appreciates that the City will install a pedestrain crosswalk on 45th Avenue and Grand that will provide a safe pathway between locations.
