Circle food store re-opening


Circle Food Store will be re-opening. The 7th Ward grocery store hasn’t been opened since flooding in Hurricane Katrina. The store received a $1 million loan from the city’s Fresh Food Retailer Initiative, a partnership between the mayor’s office, Hope Enterprise Corp., and The Food Trust to open stores selling fresh produce in low-income neighborhoods. The city’s Economic Development Fund kicked in an extra $100,000.

Circle Food store served the 7th Ward and thousands of New Orleanians for decades, and as the first African-American owned and operated grocery store in our city, it is a huge piece of our history,” Landrieu said in a statement.

The owner plans on having the Circle Food Sore open by Easter.

  1. Buzzing already -admittedly that might have shtomeing to do with the all the coffee I’m drinking to keep me awake tonight ! As with most people my concerns are up front-can the O-Line keep AR upright and can the D-line get pressure up the middle and hold the run especially if we start in nickel. If we can with our ball hawk secondary there could be some big picks there (I hope). Raji needs a monster game- howay big lad As the article says Finley on a LB is a mismatch any day of the week but the Saints LB corps seems like an potential soft spot anyway so hoping to see us try and get the LB’s in coverage as much as possible and get the ball out fast if Williams is going to bring exotic blitzes..
