Recently Shop ’n Save announced it will build a store in the Hill District, so we ask residents how they felt about it. Here’s what you said:


“I think it’s wonderful. It took long enough to get it up here and I hope it stays a long time. It’s something that we needed. It’s good for their business and good for the Hill.”
Darryl Brown
Hill District

“I think it’s a good idea but we need more than a Shop ’n Save. Just like East Liberty, we need bigger stores like Target. Since we’re close to Downtown we need more entrepre­neurship and businesses like movie theaters that other cities have.”
Levi Ball
Musician/rap artist
Hill District

“It’s more convenient and we don’t have to go all the way to the South Side to shop. It will make things easier for my family.”
Breanna Wilburn
College student
Hill District

“I’m happy they’re opening Shop ’n Save. The Hill needs a grocery store. It’s about time and has taken long enough.”
Tyrone Kennedy

“I think it’s a good idea; we have no grocery store. Us older people have nowhere to go. We have to go out of the community and pay jitney fare to get there.”
Regina Green
Hill District

“I think it’s about time. I hope the community doesn’t steal from them and force it to close. I plan to shop there because it’s convenient and will support the community.”
