New Entry Completed at Old North Grocery Co-op

As of today, the Old North Grocery Co-op has a new entry, with a convenient, ADA-compatible ramp.

The ramp is finished but the new railings aren't in yet.

The ramp is finished but the new railings aren't in yet.

The new doors bring a lot more light into the store and make it easier for prospective customers to get a glimpse into what the store offers as they walk or drive by the intersection of St. Louis Avenue and N. 13th Street.

Before all of this work was finished, the store received a high profile visitor last week when Dr. Roger Beachy stopped by to learn more about the efforts under way in Old North to increase access to healthy, affordable, and fresh foods.  Dr. Beachy is the Director of the National Institute of Food & Agriculture at the United States Dept. of Agriculture.  Dr. Beachy’s visit generated some more media coverage about the store, including a story on St. Louis Public Radio and an article in the St. Louis Beacon.
