A new grocery store and deli in the West Central neighborhood, across from Cannon pool, aims to provide a healthy food shopping option for neighborhood residents. Owner Chuck Redmon, who previously owned the small dairy mart up the street, was approached by the Spokane Regional Health District because they wanted to bring their Healthy Corner Store initiative to West Central.
Chuck received business counseling and a small business loan from Financial Access, and Parkside Grocery was ready to open. The store employs Chuck and three other staff.
