The closing of Fred's Discount Store has highlighted Downtown Florence's already poor food access problems. With the closest grocery stores being a 3-4 mile walk away, or less accessible due to traffic, community members living in the downtown area and many UNA students without their own mode of transportation frequently relied on Fred's as their sole source of groceries and other basic household/personal care needs. We're petitioning to have the now vacant building occupied by an affordable grocery store with fresh food options, so the community can continue ease of access to such basic necessities. This is a much needed resource for our community, and will only help students and families thrive in downtown Florence.
