.A Grocery Store for West Oakland

Finally, after a ten-year wait, West Oakland is getting a new full-service grocery store: If all goes according to plan, People’s Community Market (PCM) will open by the end of 2013 — a culmination of the decade that its CEO, Brahm Ahmadi, has spent working to get the project off the ground.

Last Thursday, Ahmadi, who founded the affiliated nonprofit People’s Grocery, kicked off an ambitious investment campaign with a “Front Porch” community gathering and pitch session held at the Numi Tea Garden in East Oakland’s warehouse district.
