grocery store

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 final pieces are falling into place for a plan to return a grocery store to the Clifton community. 

That Cincinnati neighborhood has been without a market since an IGA on Ludlow Avenue closed in January 2011. 

Another operator has been working on financing to renovate and re-open the facility. 

City Council's Budget and Finance committee Tuesday approved a tax abatement for the project. 

Resident Beth Whalen asked the full Council to support the effort.
