A local grocer and deli is rallying the troops to support its efforts to reopen its original location. Jamaica Plain’s City Feed and Supply launched a crowdfunding campaign to fund the purchase of the building that houses the original “Little Feed” at 66 Boylston St., which has been closed since August 2016 for building repairs.
Now, City Feed owners Kristine Cortese and David Warner have the opportunity to purchase the space that houses their store. “Owning the space will allow us to ensure our future in our favorite corner of the neighborhood we originated in,” they wrote on the City Feed website about their fundraising campaign.
The goal is to raise $60,000 by February 21, which will cover the down payment for the purchase, and any additional funds will go towards reopening the store. City Feed is offering rewards to those who contribute to the campaign in the form of stored value cards and extras that increase with the amount donated. The stored value cards will be redeemable in either store for the amount contributed, and rewards offered will include sandwiches, mugs, tote bags, discounts, and more.
“It helps us get money when we need it and it gives you rewards for your advanced purchase,” the campaign notes. As of February 9, City Feed had raised $37,550 of the $60,000 goal.
