New Local Foods "Grocery Store", Knox County, looking for local suppliers

Nov. 9, 2012

Knox County, Ohio, is preparing to open a local food "grocery" type store on Friday, November 23, 2012 called Harvest @ The Woodward.  The organizing committee is looking for food products (produce, fruit, dairy, meat, eggs, fish, baked goods, syrups, honey etc etc) made and/or produced within the State of Ohio to sell through this location.

The basic structure: Each vendor will be responsible for keeping their products stocked and ensure that it meets the standards set by management.  The store management will communicate regularly on inventories and will take the lead in advertising and marketing all store products.  In turn, providers/vendors will be charged a 20% commission on all items sold to go towards the operation of the store.

The store will be open six days a week, 10am-6pm Monday-Friday and 11am-3pm Saturday.
