The success of the Goose Grocer is making our community grant program possible. More information here.
The Goose Community Grocer
The Goose Grocer is located at the Bayview Center shopping plaza, where Goosefoot purchased 9 acres of commercial property in 2005. The Goose, open since 2009, is owned by Goosefoot and operated by the Myers Group, a grocery store management group headquartered in Clinton. While Goosefoot hadn't planned to own a grocery store, it became necessary after the grocery store formerly in that location did not renew their lease in 2008. We could not let 21,000 sq. ft. of anchor retail space sit empty!
It took a few years, but the profits realized from the Goose are now being given back to the community. Our shoppers are directly responsible for making this philanthropy possible. If you are a Goose shopper, thank you!
We are proud that through the Goose Grocer, we were able to donate $170,423 to our local school garden program over the past three years. Through a matching funds program, Goosefoot matched over $85,000 in donations received from individuals in our community.
