Woman launches first Black-owned grocery store in Compton

Kia Patterson is making history in Compton, California, and opening up the first Black-owned grocery store there.

Patterson is the owner/operator of “The Grocery Outlet,” and she hopes that her outlet will provide a way to bring organic food options to people at more affordable prices.

She is no stranger to the industry, either. For years, Patterson worked at Smart & Final, and then she decided that she wanted to pursue her own dreams and make her own grocery outlet.

If you’re in the area, stop by and support her at “The Grocery Outlet” at 2175 W. Rosecrans Ave Compton, Ca. 90220.
