Karibu celebrates grand opening
Monday, May 13, 2019
After a soft opening last fall, Karibu Grocery and Deli celebrated its official grand opening on May 3, recognizing all who were involved in the process of making the business happen.
Karibu, located on the corner of Payne and Minnehaha avenues, has found strong support in the neighborhood, and serves as a gateway of sorts to the East Side — “karibu” means welcome in Swahili.
“I’m so excited to see this developed and to see these ideas coming from our neighborhood,” said Don Lorr, a former Railroad Island Neighborhood Task Force chair.
