Tucson Community Food Bank's Grocery Store to Close

Posted By on Wed, Jul 28, 2010 at 2:19 PM

A grocery store that many, many low-income folks depend on for their daily bread is closing. From a press release received this afternoon:

The Community Food Bank has announced that its Value Market Grocery Store will close on Friday, October 1, 2010.

The Value Market, located at the Community Food Bank, 3003 S. Country Club Road, began operation in 1995 offering low cost groceries to patrons of Food Bank services.

“The economy and our inability to offer competitive pricing in the grocery market lead to the decision,” said Bill Carnegie, President/CEO.

Beginning August 1, 2010, the Value Market will begin reducing prices in order to close out current inventory.

The Value Market is open to the general public and anyone is welcome to shop while supplies last.
