From the Keil Family

Having a grocery store in Marana proper and the Gladden Farms area would be a huge benefit to the community as a whole. 

1.     Residents with limited transportation have to purchase groceries at either Sandario Discount Market or Family Dollar.  The prices are higher and there is a limited selection.

2.     Individuals working in the area would help to contribute to the economy.  Marana Unified School District employs hundreds of people that would utilize a grocery store -- lunch items or picking up items on their way home after work.

3.     A grocery store would provide a service to residents in San Lucas, Red Rock, Picacho Peak, Saguaro Bloom, Gladden Farms, and all surrounding areas. 

4.     A grocery store would provide employment opportunities.

5.     A grocery store would encourage other business to move to the area.  This would increase revenue for the city.

If you build it, I will shop!

Thank you,
