Simon's Supermarket Celebrates Successful First Year
Residents and Community Leaders gathered at Simon's Supermarket on Euclid Avenue in December to celebrate the store's first anniversary. Mayor Holzheimer Gail welcomed the crowd and congratulated storeowner Simon Hussain and his staff for their hard wark and dedication to providing a wonderful shopping experience to the community. Residents were also able to ask questions and provide feedback to Mr. Hussain regarding his first year in business.
Roger Sikes, program manager for the Cuyahoga County Board of Health's Creating Healthy Communities, organized the event and invited residents from the Buckeye neighborhood, where Simon's Supermarket plans to expand. Cleveland City Councilman Blaine Griffin and Director of Cleveland's City Planning Commission Freddy Collier and staff Marka Fields also joined residents from both cities. Euclid City Councilwoman Taneika Hill spoke about how this neighborhood was in a food desert, and because Simon's Supermarket filled that gap and now residents have a store in a convenient location that provides fresh, afforable groceries. Mr. Hussain closed the forum by thanking the community for their incredible support.
We wish continued success for Simon's Supermarket, Happy Anniversary!
Community Development Manager at the City of Euclid and lifelong resident.
