New grocery store at 39th and Prospect aims to be oasis in food desert

A new grocery store opens Monday at 39th Street and Prospect Avenue, and neighbors say they can’t wait. Other quality groceries in the neighborhood moved out long ago, so people drive long distances to get fresh produce, meats and other items. This is just the first of a number of projects city officials are working on to address the “food desert” in the urban core.
