Our Woodlawn neighbor — City Meats and Vegetables – is launching a major effort to help create a healthier community. That effort will result in more fresh meat and produce, better store layout, and new branding and community partnerships. Owner Randy Newell and the UFP team engaged the community and asked customers what they want from City Meats. Y’all spoke and we listened. City Meats is striving towards improved marketing, better communications, and more community outreach.
Newell is focusing on better branding, store reorganization, in-store marketing, a seasonal promotion calendar and product diversification to include more fresh meat and healthier items. City Meats customer David Todd, of Sparta Creative, has designed a logo and new fliers to share what City Meats has to offer. Newell has also purchased a cooler for fresh meat, and store reorganization is underway. Newell even created a healthy family pack for clients of Woodlawn YWCA’s nutrition programming.
Seasonal promotions begin in February with the $20 Valentine’s dinner pack. Learn more HERE! Keep your eyes out for this dedicated Woodlawn business owner’s improvements in the coming months!
The two properties serve two sides of the same purpose—to expose people to art.
From expert seamstresses to experienced sound engineers, residents of Woodlawn have come together at Porch Parties. On December 13, they’ll share their skills with their neighbors at the Woodlawn-Made Holiday Market at Bungalow Bungalow from 7-9 p.m.
This Sunday, a group of volunteers will embark on a façade improvement project at The Shop on 1st Avenue – cleaning and painting the outside of the building.
