Steering Committee Meeting to Discuss Grocery Store Development

Cairo Community grocery store

The community survey conducted in 2012 listed development of a community grocery store a priority. Over the last few months community members have been meeting, touring comparable grocery stores and discussing the feasibility of opening a new grocery store. The Village of Cairo has dedicated the property directly East of the Village office as a location for the possible development of a Grocery Store.

The Mayor’s Steering committee will be meeting with Jim Crandall, Cooperative Business Development Specialist from UNL, on October 28th at 5:30 at the Fire Hall to build an action plan for exploring the development of a community grocery store.
