Austin, TX (PRWEB) August 06, 2012
in.gredients opened its doors at 2610 Manor Road this morning as Austin’s newest grocery store. Roughly 10 blocks east of I-35 in Cherrywood, the neighborhood-oriented microgrocer offers local food with pure ingredients with a community-centric feel.
in.gredients’ retail space is dense and efficient, offering over 400 products in 1,300 square feet. The store also offers ready-to-eat foods, beer and wine, and free wi-fi, with outdoor seating and a playground for kids.
“We’re excited bring back the neighborhood grocer,” in.gredients Co-Founder Christian Lane said. “We look forward to serving our community and bringing good food to our neighborhood.”
The interior of the store gives customers a feel unlike most retail experiences. in.gredients’ local-centric, package-free goals for grocery shopping is something many Americans are unfamiliar with.
“We don’t want to be like any other store,” Lane said. “What’s normal in the grocery industry generally doesn’t have the customer’s best interests and health in mind. in.gredients re-defines the grocery shopping experience and makes shopping simple and sustainable.”
in.gredients, which hosted a variety of community-building events during its buildout, hopes to continue to center around groceries and community and promote sustainability.
“We want in.gredients to be a place where our community can unite around common causes: good food and sustainable living,” Lane said. “Together, we can change the way we eat, shop, and live for the better.”
