Plugging Auburn Gresham's grocery gap

For a “food desert” like Auburn Gresham, the arrival of a new Aldi grocery store is a reason for celebration. This morning I drove down to the South Side neighborhood to see the store open for the first time and afterward talked to Carlos Nelson, executive director of the Greater Auburn Gresham Development Corporation, about the impact it and other new developments will have on the community.

In early 2007, Joe Zekas met up with Carlos in Auburn Gresham to talk about the neighborhood. You can watch videos of their visit on the YoChicago YouTube channel.
