Working Together Jackson Celebrates Grocery Store Opening

Two years ago, after Kroger announced the closure of a South Jackson grocery store, Working Together Jackson leaders rallied behind the laid-off workers and made a public commitment to fight for its replacement.  Due to the creativity and persistence of Working Together Jackson leaders, a Jackson Cash and Carry grocery store opened in its place — tangible fruits of local efforts.

Rev. Ronnie Drudup Jr. announced that the organization wants to not only “support this store, but all” stores across Jackson.  ”We’ve got to make sure we bring high quality fruits, vegetables, and produce all around the city of Jackson.”
