Detroit Independent Grocers Launch Mydetroitgrocers.com

New website helps Detroiters find fresh foods and grocers.



Published:

SOUTHFIELD - MyDetroitGrocers.com, a new website aimed at providing a resource for Detroiters to find fresh affordable food in the city, has launched this week. The site was created by the Chaldean American Chamber of Commerce and highlights more than 80 grocery options available in Detroit.

The website features an interactive map to show city residents how close they are to an independently owned grocery store. MyDetroitGrocers.com also offers store photos and videos, grocer profiles and customer testimonials.

“All our grocer members are dedicated to providing quality, fresh food options for their customers as they have for decades,” said Martin Manna, President of the Chaldean American Chamber of Commerce. “From produce to meat and dairy, our DIG stores take great pride in their stores and food offerings and in their longstanding tradition of serving the respective communities in which they each reside.”

To be considered for DIG membership, all stores must:

-       Provide a clean and safe shopping environment that adheres to the finest sanitation standards

-       Supply a variety of high quality, fresh and healthy foods

-       Support and give back to the communities they serve

-       Offer fair and competitive pricing

-       Continue the legacy of serving Detroit for more than 70 years

“There is perception and then there is reality,” added Manna. “Over the years, our grocers have spent millions building or renovating existing properties in response to community feedback and need. These grocers know their customers, carry what their customers want and run successful stores, day in and day out, in Detroit.”

The vast majority of Detroit’s independent grocers operate their stores with little or no government incentives, while continuing to serve and meet the needs of their customers.
