CLIFTON HEIGHTS, OH (FOX19) -
The often delayed plans of bringing a grocery store back to
Clifton are being resurrected.
A local group is forming a co-op to re-open the old Keller's IGA.
The store is currently owned by Steve Goessling but he's had so
many problems renovating the place he's out of money.
Now a neighborhood group called the Clifton Cooperative Market
steering committee has a plan to buy the property and get the store back on its
"The object of this is
to create a full service grocery store and it would be under a cooperative
format which means it would be owned by the community," steering committee member Adam Hyland said.
Hyland says the idea is to give local residents an opportunity to
have a stake in the project.
"There's no fee to shop there but you can buy an
owner share starting at $200," he said.
The sale of those shares will provide the capital needed to buy
the property, finish renovations and get the store off the ground.
committee member Robert Krikorian says he's confident they can make it happen.
"We've had contact with other cooperatives in the region and we've had a lot of
help from Blooming Foods which is in Bloomington, Ind. and they've been very
supportive. And actually just working on it for several months, has given us all
a lot of knowledge about what it's going to require to do this," he said.
There's been an outpouring of support for the project from the
Ludlow Wines owner Mike Anagnostou says the need for a
neighborhood grocery store is great.
"It's a tremendous need," he said. "It almost lends
itself to a quality of life issue."
Clifton Town Meeting President Ben Pantoja says a grocery store
will provide an economic boost to the community.
"Any grocery store would
really bring people here and once they're here they're going to the restaurants
and the movie theatre and everything else we have to offer," he said.
In addition to the sale of shares, the co-op board members say
they've gotten a number of financial pledges and they hope to have the purchase
completed within the next few months.
co-op steering committee plans to hold an informational meeting 2-4 p.m. Sunday at Ludlow Wines in Clifton and 7 p.m. Monday on the second floor of the Clifton Cultural Arts Center.
