Cody Grocery Store Open
Tuesday, 30 April 2013 05:21
Monday was the official opening of the Cody grocery store. The official ribbon cutting will be May 24th at 9 am. Hours for right now are 8-6 mst. The idea was conceived at a teacher-in-service back in 2009, where Tracy Ford and Stacie Adamson collaborated with fellow colleagues by brainstorming. The grocery store would not only benefit students, but the community as well by making it easier to obtain fresh produce and other groceries. Student groups were formed to help make decisions about the details of the store. After a trip to Nebraska Game and Parks and the University of Nebraska at Kearney, students were able to learn more about how the business world works and how to become a successful entrepreneur.
The store, which was built as a straw bale building in order to stay “green” and use less heating, will feature groceries, a small office space, and a classroom. The classroom will give students the hands-on training of running a business, as well as teach them advertisement skills, life skills, building techniques, design courses, and entrepreneurship.
