Guess who is launching a grocery chain?
The Salvation Army has opened the first store in its upcoming chain of grocery stores.
According to Grubstreet, the organization has opened a grocery store in Baltimore. The banner is called DMG Foods, which promises to provide customers with a “healthier, smarter, cheaper” grocery store option in food deserts, places where the majority of population lives more than a mile away from a grocery store.
The 7,000-square-foot shop aims to bring nutritious, healthy food to low income residents in one of the nation’s poorest urban areas — the so-called "food deserts."
“DMG Foods is the first grocery store in the nation to combine social service with a traditional grocery shopping experience. Our social services include nutritional guidance, shopping education, workforce development, and meal planning,” the shop’s website states.
