Bang Family Market

Stabilization Grant, Spring 2013

For almost 20 years, Bang Family Market has been located on Ridge Avenue. The owner stocks fresh healthy foods for the northern Brewerytown area where there aren’t many other options.

Competition is growing, which is hurting his sales, but The Bang Family Market has great integrity. They are working with Project H.O.M.E. as a sponsor. The compressors in both his walk-in and his two standing freezers are broken. He wasn’t able to stock fresh meat and poultry or the variety of frozen foods he sold, which dramatically affected his sales.

Replacing his compressors will save him money and enable him to continue to buy at wholesale, thus satisfying the needs of his customers and the neighborhood. This will also continue to enable him to keep his strong presence in the community.
