Grand Opening


The moment we open our doors is going to be a very emotional one for many of you after witnessing or being part of 10 years of hard work, organizing, planning, fundraising, and construction. Over the last few weeks we've met lots of our friends, supporters, and neighbors peeking in our window to check out our progress, and we've heard again and again how excited the neighborhood is for our store's arrival!

About Our Quiet but Enthusiastic Grand Opening Celebration:

We originally wanted to throw the party of the century with all of South Philly breaking bread with us, however now, with the pandemic and Safer at Home restrictions in place, we're planning a much quieter but equally enthusiastic Grand Opening. 

Please join us virtually on Wednesday, December 23rd at 11:45am as we go live on instagram for a bread breaking with our incredible staff moments before we open our doors. Thank you to our amazing sponsor Merzbacher's for the delicious and beautiful bread (WITH OUR NAME ON IT!!!).

Then, at noon our doors will open to the public! 

Speaking of our Incredible New Staff:

We've been introducing all of our new clerks on social media all week! 

Please give our new team members a virtual welcome. They're terrific, and we feel so lucky to have them on board. 

Keeping our Shoppers Safe:

As thrilled as we are to physically have our doors open, for your safety we will only be allowing 12 shoppers in the store at one time. Please dress warmly for the possibility of socially distanced outdoor lines if you're planning on joining us the first few days.

Please feel free to read our Covid-19 Safety Plan here. We will be closely monitoring guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local health officials in our area, and we will update our own plans accordingly. 

Alternatively, we welcome you to try out our pilot local delivery program with Bloc Delivery. We are working on a limited list of our items available to start and will expand our offerings as we go. Please bear with us as this is a new system for us, and we're still working out the kinks!

In the future we are excited to offer curbside pick up and we will be sure to let you know all about it once we're up and running with this program!
