The South End Grocery Store had its grand opening in Albany on Tuesday morning.

The ribbon cutting comes one year after the South End Grocery Coalition bought the property at 106 South Pearl Street, which used to be a McDonald’s.

The South End Grocery Coalition is made up of more than 75 organizations and stakeholders hoping to provide equitable access to healthy groceries.

The grocery store has cold prepared sandwiches, hot prepared meals, along with dairy items and much more.
