Established Cooperative Health Food Store Opening in July 2019 at Mississippi’s Popular Shopping Destination

 

RIDGELAND, Miss. (May 23, 2019) – Northpark in Ridgeland, Mississippi, announced today that Rainbow Co-op will be the newest addition to the region’s popular shopping destination. Combining the shared vision and mission of Rainbow Co-op’s Board of Directors, shareholders, and the Community Development Department in Ridgeland, the well-known health food cooperative will continue its nearly 40 year legacy at Northpark’s southeast entrance near Med Grille. The new location was selected for its accessibility, foot traffic, and abundant natural lighting.

“To welcome a store such as Rainbow Co-op is amazing. The distinction and local product-mix is a win-win for Northpark and the community as a whole,” states Northpark General Manager, Kasey Dickson.

The new store will focus on a curated inventory, concentrating on specialty items such as hard-to-find herbs, spices, supplements, coffees and teas, as well as a selection of popular “by-the-pound” items such as beans, rice, and flour. Rainbow Co-op will continue to offer popular natural grocery and beauty items. There will be a community meeting for shareholders to discuss the changes on June 30th, and a soft opening is planned for July. The Grand Opening Celebration date and associated programming elements will be announced in late June.

Northpark, managed by Pacific Retail Capital Partners, completed a multi-million dollar redevelopment in November of 2018. Poised for ongoing growth, Northpark will continue to expand its tenant mix in the coming months.
