Brad Paisley and his wife Kimberly Williams-Paisley are opening a free grocery store in Nashville where community members in need can shop.
They’re calling it “The Store.” Brad and Kimberly have it set up similar to a food bank. The supermarket will provide both fresh produce and non perishables. The goal is to help customers become self-sufficient, so they will be allowed to shop at the store for free for a limit of one year.
“This is a grocery store with dignity for people who have fallen on hard times,” Paisley told the Tennessean. “All of us are one unforeseen disaster away from rock bottom. It’s nice to think about a place where when that happens to someone, they can use it to get back on their feet.”
The Store will be located in a neighborhood nearby to Belmont University, and is expected to break ground in 2019.
