Alongside the discount food chain Save-A-Lot, the co-op, located on Meade Street between Wilkinsburg and Point Breeze, has operated as a full-service grocery store since 1978. The operation is run by only 70 employees and works with more than 150 local suppliers to bring food items that not only support shoppers’ health, but also the local economy.
