Green Top Grocery Set to Open

Green Top owners got to preview the store on Tuesday.

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. - After five years of planning, Green Top Grocery in Bloomington will finally open at the end of this week.

The co-op announced Tuesday that the store will hold a grand opening and ribbon cutting on Friday at noon. Owners got the chance to tour the store on Tuesday, before it opens. The store will feature locally grown produce and a teaching kitchen. Leaders say they can't believe the store is finally about to open.

"After working for this for so long, seeing these shelves go up is just an incredibly rewarding experience. Finally being able to call vendors, who are local to Bloomington and Normal, and asking them for opening orders," says Michael Pennington, general manager of Green Top.

As of Tuesday afternoon, the store has over 1,500 owners.
