A vegan grocery store in New York City has gone from a mere idea to a reality.
The store, located at the corner of Broadway and 5th Avenue, has been named “The Vegan Grocery Store.”
The concept was announced in February.
The vegan supermarket will offer vegan options like organic produce and vegan cheeses and drinks.
It will also serve meatless items.
The grocery store has been operating since January 2018.
This vegan supermarket is a dream come true for a family of three and a child.
“I just can’t wait to get out of the house and start eating meat,” said Shauna St. John, a mother of two.
The vegan grocery shop is named after the local vegan community in New Zealand.
The New Zealand-based group, Vegans for Food Freedom, has set out to bring the idea to America.
The group’s founder, Ben Hensley, says he is excited to start the first New Zealand shop.
Hensley has been working on the idea for about a year and is proud to be part of the “first ever” New Zealand vegan grocery business.
St. John and her two children are looking forward to the day when they can pick up fresh groceries without having to walk 10 minutes to a nearby convenience store.
The supermarket will be in a large space at Broadway and Fifth Avenue.
