For the first time in 25 years, the Northside of Binghamton has a fully operating Grocery Store.
The grocery store is located at 435 State St. in the ground floor of a new $20.5 million mixed use building. Greater Good Grocery sells fresh fruits and vegetables, meats, dairy products, frozen foods and a variety of non-perishable goods.
Run by the Broome County Council of Churches, the store will help address food insecurity in Binghamton. It was modeled after Bargain Grocery in Utica, a social-purpose grocery store that opened over a decade ago. Bargain Grocery and Greater Good have a food sourcing agreement that will allow the Northside grocery store to source food through the Utica stores expansive supply chain.
“I can not thank CHOW and Catholic Charities enough for the history in partnership over the course of the last seven years and working to address the food insecurity issue,” said Binghamton Mayor Rich David. Profits will go to the Broome County Council of Churches to address food insecurity.
Greater Good Grocery Store is open Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
