On September 2nd, nearly 200 people helped us celebrate the opening of our new East 7th Street store at the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony. Our guests were greeted with tasty scones (thanks Mississippi Market bakers!) and Peace Coffee to enjoy.
We were pleased to have the following speakers in attendance to mark the occasion: Our general manager, Gail Graham; Mayor Coleman; St. Paul Port Authority President, Louis Jambois; Dayton’s Bluff Community Council Executive Director, Deanna Abbott-Foster; and Mississippi Market Board President, Jon Olson.
Carolfaye Meadows, Je Vang, and Jon Olson helped cut the ribbon, joined by Rekoe Howard and James Arnold from Project Superman and Fresh Starts Farm.
Carolefaye took the opportunity to greet excited shoppers as they entered the new store for the first time.
It was so gratifying to see so many people exploring the store!
