Clifton has been without a supermarket since January 2011, when Kellers IGA closed. Another supermarket operator bought the building on Ludlow Avenue, but wasn't able to open a store there.  So for the last year, community advocates have been raising money to start a cooperative market.

A cooperative market is owned by many individuals who typically have a say in how the business is run.

The district will also serve as a transfer point for nine routes rather than going through the main hub downtown.
