A Message From Our President
General Store is Stocking Food Staples, Sundry Items and More
While shelves might be bare at some grocery stores, residents can find basic grocery items at the JKV Auxiliary General Store.
Located at the Villager Inn, 1001 Chipman Road, staff has consolidated all gift store operations out of the General Store to more easily manage stock. (Gifts and More at the Courtyard Commons is closed for the time being.) Staff has been working with local grocery stores to obtain staple items like milk, bread, cereal, frozen meals and more. The store also has a supply of toilet paper, over-the-counter medicines and other general merchandise.
Residents who live in the Villager Complex can access the General Store within the building. Those who live outside the Villager Complex can access the store through the exterior door on the east side of the building.
Residents who need items delivered can call in an order. (They are asked to have a check or exact change/cash ready in an envelope to leave for the delivery person.)
The John Knox Village Auxiliary General Store has been providing groceries and sundry items to residents and associates for the last several weeks. To make sure all independent living residents can benefit from the service, Auxiliary staff has been manning the store and delivering grocery orders throughout campus.
- All deliveries must be a minimum order of $5. The service is still free, but a minimum order must be met.
- Deliveries will be distributed after 3:30 p.m. on each designated delivery day. (Delivery only offered Monday through Friday.)
- The General Store will close at 3:30 p.m. (Monday – Friday) to enable staff to make deliveries on campus as well as to do things around the store, such as placing grocery orders, stocking shelves and cleaning.
The General Store, 347-2394, is open from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
